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.

Tea
 (голосов: 0)
In most countries, tea is a very disappointing experience: a teabag dropped into a glass of hot water with the string still attached. In Britain, by contrast, tea is not only a wonderful drink, but also a light but substantial meal of sandwiches, biscuits and cake, and an important ceremony of our national life.

It was of course the British who discovered the pleasant and restorative effects of this famous infusion. One day a gentleman called Earl Grey was walking with a friend through India when suddenly, in the middle distance, he noticed a small and undistinguished-looking shrub covered with greenish leaves. The sun was hot and both men were feeling very thirsty. In a moment of visionary inspiration, Earl Grey turned to his companion: "I say, Carstairs - do you see that undistinguished-looking bush or shrub over there? Now that would make a nice cup of tea!"

Thus was born the East India Tea Company and the habit of drinking this refreshing beverage in small porcelain cups, which has since spread throughout the world.

I'm gasping for a cuppa!
One lump or two?

Avoid saying
Actually, I'd prefer coffee.
