This is the "book sundial" that was found on the ship.

The wooden case it is in is covered in leather. It looks just like a book when closed.

We found one other type of sundial. These are like small globes. The bottom halves have holes drilled in them.

We think these sundials had sweet smelling herbs in them, the holes were to let the nice smell out.
