A 7.5 thousand year-old polished hand axe, from the Neolithic, was excavated by archaeologists working in Gorham’s Cave this Saturday. This is the first such hand axe recovered in context from a Gibraltar cave and is further testament of the presence of people on the Rock at the critical time when agriculture and farming were arriving in the west from the Middle East.

As Summer rears to that almost unbearable peak, a pleasant thought to keep in mind is that this Sunday marks annual National Ice Cream Day. The fairly unknown holiday is, unsurprisingly, a creation that stemmed from the US. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan made a proclamation that each July would mark national Ice Cream month, with every third Sunday playing host to National Ice Cream Day.
Within his proclamation, President Reagan explained that the ice cream industry generated $3.5 billion in annual sales and provides jobs for thousands of citizens. He added that almost ten percent of all the milk produced in the US in the 80s was used to produce ice cream.
