The Lewis Chessmen were discovered in 1831, on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland by a local shepherd. He 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 and are the oldest complete set of chessmen ever found. Made from walrus tusk, the most recent evidence suggests they 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 but you can own a little piece of history yourself by buying a replica quality Lewis Chess Set. This set is made by SAC from ground stone resin and the design closely follows the original pieces. King height is 95mm and it should suit a board with 50mm squares.
