Well the second item is I think identified. A man
who was religious came to the cases today when I was grading papers. I showed him the item and he seemed instantly to guess it. The part
I thought sat
on a table did have some signs of cementing to something.
He sees it as a hook. With a radiant cross
and a hook to maybe hold prayer beads. It does look like it glues against a wall and the part
I thought was a handle
is at a 90 degree angle so it would hold something like a hook.Still
have no idea what the other item is but I feel really good about his
thoughts on what looked initially like a math device or protractor. I am biased as a chemist to not see the obvious.
