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.

The True Brit knows that her dog, cat, budgerigar, hamster, or even her goldfish, is more likely to prove loyal, affectionate and easy to talk to than the majority of human beings.

In Britain the phrase "It's a dog's life" is an expression of envy. Go into any British supermarket and look at the huge selection of mouth-watering foods available for pets, not to mention the doggy chocs, cat treats, scratching posts, woollen coats, jewel-encrusted collars and all the medicines and toiletries with which to care for and pamper your pet.

The unusually privileged position of animals in the British household is exemplified by the following story:
A British woman is describing her family to a foreign visitor. "There's me. And my husband. And our two cats."

"No children?" asks the stranger.

"We did have," comes the reply, "but we had to get rid of them because the cats were allergic to them."
