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.

Go Camping UK at Overstrand, Beach Close, Overstrand, Cromer, Norfolk

Go Camping UK at Overstrand, Beach Close, Overstrand, Cromer, NorfolkSmall but perfectly located, this campsite sits atop the Norfolk cliffs with lovely views across the sea and miles of sandy beach stretching out below. Run by Go Camping UK, it's comprised of 10 'ready' tents in a line along the back of the site; and the rest of the small, flat field provides 45 unmarked pitches just for tents - not even campervans can sneak in.

Two miles along the coast from the seaside town of Cromer, which you can reach either by walking along the beach or the cliff-top path, the campsite forms a temporary summer extension to the pretty village of Overstrand. With a good pub, a well-stocked shop and post office, a cafe, and a children's playground next door to the site, the village meets all a camper's needs, and more besides. And while kids scramble down the cliffs to the beach from the path running along the front of the site, adults can reach it by the more sedate routes leading from the adjacent car park.

Denise and her family run the site and camp alongside you in one of their ready tents; rustling up cooked breakfasts, toasted sandwiches, and pub-type food in the evenings from the onsite Cabin Cafe.
