    Looks like a dumpy level we used to use in the building trade to determine levels. Any markings?

    Mostly for construction, but we also use them still in Archaeology, though not that common anymore. Probably similar types would have been used by the military, for taking levels and laying flat surfaces, such as airfield runways.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
