The most important and interesting of all the medieval chess pieces to have been found, the Lewis Chessmen were found in 1831 in an underground camber on the West Coast of the Isle of Lewis. Made from walrus ivory, there are 78 chess pieces of which 67 are now housed in the British Museum and 11 in the National Museum of Edinburgh. The exact origin of the Isle of Lewis chess pieces is unknown but they have been attributed to both Scotland and Scandinavia. Generally accepted as being from 12th Century.
