The Lewis Chessmen, 12th century, British Museum. Both archaeological finds and written sources testify that both board games and dice games were played as a popular pastime by the Vikings, at all levels of society. Preserved gaming pieces and boards show game boards made of a wide range of materials.
The Lewis Chessmen are a group of 78 12th-century chess pieces, most of which are carved in walrus ivory. Discovered in 1831 on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Perhaps King Henry II of England had a similar chess set?
