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.

Folkestone Camping, The Warren, Folkestone, Kent
 (голосов: 0)
Folkestone Camping, The Warren, Folkestone, KentThe soaring white cliffs of Folkestone and nearby Dover are infamous. Welcoming yet overwhelming, the cliffs are nothing short of spectacular. And because cliffs like these need an equally spectacular viewing spot, the Camping and Caravanning Club created Folkestone campsite. It's set in a particularly attractive curve of the Kentish coast and has an outlook of Channel waters and crumbly crags, and (as one of the closest spots to continental Europe) is handy for a ferry or Channel Tunnel excursion. The main camping field is an immaculate grassland strip with flat unmarked pitches.Those nearest reception are the most unsheltered, but your views across the Channel are uninhibited, and there are some stealthy little spots among the trees - including the surreptitiously placed Honeymoon pitch. Wike up each morning to cliffs, coastline, and beaches - the site's position means you're only a path away from the shingle and sand beach below. Trek a bit further and you'll find the man-made Samphire Hoe nature reserve — one of the newest parts ot England (thanks to the leftovers from the Channel Tunnel excavation) juxtaposed with the old and wise cliffs.
