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.

Deer's Glade Caravan and Camping Park, White Post Road, Hanworth, Norwich, NorfolkSet in a quiet woodland clearing, Deer's Glade successfully combines modern innovations with old-school camping principles. The owners, David and Heather, have taken great care and attention in creating the site, so that the hotel-style facilities - contemporary bathrooms and wi-fi access — don't come at the expense of nature and conservation. The slick showers are housed in eco-friendly wooden buildings, and the native saplings and hedges planted a few years ago are maturing into a pleasant landscaped environment. While the ground has been levelled and turfed for easy pitching, wild areas have been left around the hedges, providing a habitat for insects and birds.

The site is great for adults and children alike. Kids will make for the playground or rush to buy bags of food for the resident goats and ducks; adults can relax by the lake. From the campsite you can walk directly into the adjacent woodland, with its acres of conifer-rich foliage and resident wild deer. A tents-only camping area, Muntjac Meadow, is accessed through the woods and open in August. The deer sometimes even visit the site, but it's easier to spot them on the short amble to Gunton Park, which offers parkland walks and a large fishing lake.

Two exceptional properties in the area beg a visit. Felbrigg Hall is a remarkable 17th-century house with a delightful walled garden and orangery. And the fine Jacobean Blickling Hall is supposedly home to Anne Boleyn's headless ghost. These ancient houses hark back to an era of untold luxury. But for all their extravagance, they never had wi-fi.

COOL FACTOR Upmarket facilities in a peaceful woodland glade with occasional antlered visitors.

WHO'S IN? Everyone and everything - except generators.

ON SITE There are 100 pitches with hook-ups and 25 without for tents, caravans, and motorhomes, set out across 9 acres. Pitches with hook-ups are on either side of the gravel paths, divided by low hedges; the others are on a grassy area next to the lake. The facilities aren't as swanky in Muntjac Meadow (through the woods), but here there's a communal campfire each evening. The site shop sells basics, and locally produced meat. No noise after 11pm.

OFF SITE Felbrigg Hall (01263 837444; see www. nationaltrust.org.uk) and Blickling Hall (01263 738030) near Aylsham are both within a few miles; and the seaside towns of Cromer and Sheringham are good for sunny days.

FOOD AND DRINK There are hog roasts on the main site on summer Saturday nights. The Alby Horse Shoes Inn (01263 761378) is a traditional pub on the main road serving real ales and a locally biased menu. If you're exploring the coast, stop in at the 300-year-old Red Lion Inn (01263 825408) in Upper Sheringham; it has a Snug Bar and menu featuring locally caught fish.
