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.

Pinewood Holiday Park, Racecourse Road, Scarborough, North YorkshireYeehah! Camp Pinewood goes one better than other tipi sites, offering cowboy shacks and bell tents, too. Here you can enjoy the Wild West theme with some home comforts in one of four 'authentic' and eight 'modern' tipis. They share one of the three camping areas along with two cowboy cavalry tents and four shacks. All tents are equipped with futons and cube beds, rugs, outside decking with picnic benches, and the luxury of electricity (so not exactly the cowboy lifestyle, but we don't mind).
There's also a flat, no-frills camping field with lots of space for just 14 pitches, boasting great views over the Yorkshire Wolds. Kids can disappear off into the wooded area at the bottom of the site, which has paths weaving around the trees, to play tag, hide-and-seek and, of course, Cowboys and Indians.

Owners Kerry and Dave have done their time in the retail trade and resolutely refuse to sell anything useful from the site shop.You'll have to make the short trip into Scarborough for stocking up on food and drink; but they'll happily sell you essential items like bows and arrows, toy guns, and a cowboy hat or two to equip you for the theme.

COOL FACTOR The east coast's answer to the Wild West.

WHO'S IN? Tents, caravans, dogs (on leads), groups (can book the whole site; campfires permitted in this case) - yes.
