Item is a scroll made of bamboo woven tightly together. When unrolled, what appears to be the blueprints for a bridge can be seen drawn in black ink. There are scribbles all along the sides, variously in Chinese, Jawi, and Siamese. 

Measurements: 
Length: 1m
Width: (unrolled): 3m
Diameter when rolled: 10cm

The bridge's architecture would be straightforward, except for the sides which are built somewhat like a fortress wall.There are arrow-slits all along the length of the bridge. According to the linguists, the various writings appear to be an argument on what the bridge should be made of, with recommendations of marble, granite, and wood being the popular choices. In a corner there is a note that whatever the final decision is, the designer of the bridge must cover it with gold leaf.
