Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Heaven Farm, Furners Green, Uckfield, East SussexDiscover your own slice of camping heaven in deepest, darkest Sussex. If you wander down to the tucked away, forgotten corner of Heaven Farm you'll find a spacious, quiet field, cuddled by trees and hidden from the world. Less than two hours from London, this unassuming, unpretentious, undersubscribed campsite is a quintessentially beautiful and easy weekend getaway.

Due to the large number of accessible activities and surrounding beauty, this campsite seems more like an ingenious afterthought, perhaps to complement the award-winning neighbouring Nature Trail. Comprising a large circuit through wooded parkland and alongside streams, the trail offers different natural surprises depending on the time of year you visit. Foxgloves in the summer, visual explosions of reds, browns, and golds in autumn; Bambi deer and robins in winter; and a magical carpet of bluebells in the spring.

And if all your badgering about in the woods leaves you a little parched, you can always end your nature-filled afternoon with an impressive cream tea at the Heaven Farm Stables Tea Rooms.

COOL FACTOR Peaceful spot in heavenly scenery. WHO'S IN? Everyone welcome (groups by arrangement).

ON SITE Campfires allowed.Thirty pitches (some not quite level); a separate section of 5 Caravan Club pitches with electric hook-ups. Additional hook-ups available. Three well-maintained showers (not available 10am-5pm). Bring a torch - there's no lighting here after dark. The Stables Tea Rooms are open 10am-5pm. There's an onsite organic shop selling home-made marmalades, chutneys, and nut-butters, and a craft shop, open 11am-5pm.
