    hello everybody

    i found this on my local beach and have been trying to find out what it is.

    i have been trying to see if the marking are a language or just a pattern.
    looking around Google i thought it looked like Glagolitic script.

    it was while trying to translate the marking i stumbled across this web site and thought you experts might be able to help.
    i have no idea if the markings are the correct way round or not.

    here is a link to a pic which can be zoomed in on, and rotated as you need to.

    sorry if i have posted in the wrong section

    If you turn it upside down, some shapes (in the middle) do resemble Devanagari letters.
    Where did you find this item?

    I found it on the beach in Portsmouth
    It was folded flat in a v shape with the pattern on the inside.
