How to identify an item

Hi all

Thanks for the great forum. Very useful. Unfortunately i could not find an answer for my question.
My relative found three items under his house after a rocket hit it and collapsed under the war. One of the items is a form of very old piece of leather cloth with some writing and drawing on it. We asked local people about it but no one seems to know how to identify it. Can anybody please give me either a tip about what it is or a link to websites where i can identify if it is a type of ancient or magic or anything else. I do not know how to uppload a picture of this item. Can anybody plaese help me with that.
Hope to hear from you guys soon.
Best regards

Best thing with any object is

Best thing with any object is to take it to a local museum. If they can’t identify it they’ll know who can. Also this way finds can be put in the record, so other people can know about them in the future.
