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.

Demesne Farm Campsite, Bellingham, Hexham, Northumberland
 (голосов: 0)
Demesne Farm Campsite, Bellingham, Hexham, NorthumberlandDemesne Farm's patch of flat green sits on the outskirts of the sleepy, blink-and-you'll-miss-it village of Bellingham. In fact, it's the location of this rural retreat coupled with having the Pennine Way right on the doorstep that make it so popular. Demesne Farm is first and foremost a haven for walkers and cyclists who, after a long day spent tackling the Pennines, need a pastoral pillow on which to rest their weary heads. The campsite isn't large — just one field given over to campers — but it feels bigger as it looks out over a wide expanse of rural England that glows golden as the sun falls. And to those weary walkers, it's heaven. Over the busy summer months an overflow field is opened to maintain the harmonious balance at Demesne Farm. And what a farm it is; real rustic characteristics and smells alongside the resident animals.You'll notice that they're completely unperturbed by the presence of campers - especially the inquisitive brood of chickens. They'll scrabble around your guy ropes and take a peck out of everything in reach, but it's these feathered touches that make Demesne Farm such a firm favourite of all who visit there.

COOL FACTOR Comfort on the Pennine Way's doorstep.
