Holding history

Ever since I've started doing handling at the British Museum, I've been thinking of buying a Paleolithic hand-axe for my very own - there's a certain sense of perspective to be gained from handling something made tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of years ago.

And now there's a rather lovely looking one on eBay.

But since I'm about to become an impecunious freelance writer, I'm sitting on my hands.
