The Lewis Chessmen - found on the deserted Atlantic coastline of the Isle of Lewis.
The Lewis Chessmen - found on the deserted Atlantic coastline of the Isle of Lewis.

Ninety-three pieces are known today. One belt buckle, 14 plain draughts men, and 67 chessmen, all of which have been in the British Museum since 1831, and another 11 chessmen that are kept in the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland since 1888. The first actual record that dates back to 1832 concerned the pieces from the British Museum, and states under which circumstances the 67 chessmen, carved in the 8th century from the teeth of the Walrus, were bought for only £84.
