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.

Deepdale Camping, Deepdale Farm, Burnham Deepdale, NorfolkAs the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness approaches, many campsites begin to close their gates. But this is just when Deepdale Camping, with its cosy tipis and yurts nestled between tent pitches, comes into its own. Which is just as well, because the word is that there's no better time to visit the north Norfolk coast than in autumn and winter, when the crowds of summer holidaymakers have dispersed and the county is a resplendent vision of russet forests and blush-coloured clouds. By day the campsite offers views over downs, marshland, and Scolt Head Island.

At dusk the sky is split by inky-black arrowheads of geese, while behind Deepdale, the hazy calm of miles of marshland is broken only by abandoned boats and impressive sails.Then at night the dazzlingly starry sky can take your breath away.There's an annual programme of events on offer, with everything from writers' retreats, yoga, and relaxation to conservation weekends and singles' walking weeks. A stay here gives you the chance to savour the season and trade lazy summer camping for a wholly different and invigorating experience.
