Divers of the object is drawn using stipples

Divers decided to use metal-detectors and to
employ visual approach. In the Journal there are just five figures with
illustrated finds there. The first figure (Fig. 9) depicts composite objects:
metal and bone. Human and animal bones are not commonly drawn if there is no
testimony for artefact manufacture. The drawn bone has quite grainy texture,
thus there was no great manufacture applied to it, as it rough parts can be
easily identified on the illustrated bone. This detailed drawing of the surface
of the bone and metal can be used to identify the grain or its natural
characteristics and human modification of it due to the human activity.

Furthermore, the illustration shows thickness of both parts of the item, thus
with no description the length and thickness of it can be easily recognised due
to the scale under the drawing. This illustration  gives the full picture of materials of
objects, as the metal part of the object is drawn using stipples (Fig. 10)  that are thicker due to the change of the
shape of the metal, which is relatively smooth in comparison to the bone, that
has harsher texture with quite big holes in it. The bone is drawn with dots and
horizontal lines, that gives the sense of length of the bone. The composite
metal and bone is most likely modern. The illustration gives the idea that this
item was possibly used and made  by a
farmer then discarded. Whereas, these composite objects do not have any archaeological
significance, therefore  the illustration
of it does not present the data of the excavation due to its archaeological
unimportance. There is another archaeological illustration of the iron knife
blade and handle (Fig 11). The knife was found In a poor condition as it is
corroded.
