The most interesting and important of all early Chess pieces are those which have come to be known as the Lewis Chessmen. There are 78, of which 67 are in the British Museum and the other eleven in the National Museum in Edinburgh. The pieces were found in 1831 in an underground chamber on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis. Their exact origin is unknown . They have been attributed both to Scotland and Scandinavia but are generally accepted as Twelfth Century.

Requires 3Kgs of Stonecast (not included but available from the Materials page)  to make a complete 32 piece Chess Set.
