~ The history of Isle of Lewis ~

The original pieces were discovered on the Isle of Lewis back in 1831 after a sandbank collapsed. A chest was revealed that contained these beautiful chess pieces. They are believed to date back to the 12th century and are likely to have been made in Norway. Some historians argue that the pieces should never have been named after the Isle of Lewis, as this is not where their origins lie. The original pieces can be seen between the British Museum in London and the National Museum Of Scotland in Edinburgh.
