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.

At one time the British were known throughout the world as a nation of courteous and careful drivers. We motored quietly along in our Rovers and Rolls Royces, our Minis and our Morrises, stopping occasionally to let an old lady or a flock of sheep cross the road. In recent years standards have fallen and the government has introduced all kinds of measures to encourage better driving, including voucher parking, speed cameras, traffic cones, congestion charges and road rage. The last of these requires motorists to stop their cars and threaten each other with violence if they believe this olde-worlde courtesy has been breached in any way. The True Brit still maintains many of the nobler motoring traditions in this country, such as stopping at red lights and giving way to hedgehogs. As for the famous question which "side" are you on? Well, of course, in Britain right is wrong and left is right. Will we ever change? Not likely! The True Brit would rather abandon his car altogether and walk (which, come to think of it, he's doing more and more these days).
