A 'date' with Lewis Chessmen

I visited The British Museum on 30th April 2012. The main purpose is of course to see the famous  Lewis chessmen. The Lewis Chessmen  are a group of 78  12th-century chess pieces  which are discovered in 1831 on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

I've always found about this famous chess artifact written in chess literature books for e.g. The Oxford Companion to Chess which is a reference book on chess written by David Hooper and Kenneth Whyld.  a chess lover , it was  a wonderful feeling to see this famous chess artifact - live :)

Yours truly at The British Museum
