Many of the objects we find in excavation are drawn. Certain features are better illustrated or emphasized by drawing, though the illustrator's interpretation then becomes part of the image. Pottery, in particular is drawn using conventions to highlight vessel profile and the potter's technique. Recently we have begun drawing much of our pottery digitally with the help of comupters. This technique simplifies the manipulation of drawings, making enlarging, reducing, flipping and combined images easier to achieve. It also results in more durable, compact archiving and the linking of small finds images into databases. One can actually give the command to see all the finds from a particular room, palace or tomb, or just one type of find.
