Lewis Chessmen Sets

Lewis Chessmen Sets

In 1831, on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, a local shepherd found a small chamber of dry-built stone about 15 feet below the top of a sandbank that had been partially washed away by the sea. The chessmen discovered within the chamber are probably the most famous in gaming history being the oldest complete set of chessmen ever found. Made from walrus tusk, the most recent evidence suggests the Lewis Chessmen are of Norwegian origin and date back to the twelfth century.

The Lewis pieces are on display in the British Museum and in the Museum of Edinburgh. Visiting either museum is a worthy experience but with these replica Lewis Chessmen, you can own a little piece of history yourself.
