February 1, 2005: Norse Warriors Man Hadrian's Wall

A British Museum exhibit is sending 20 of the famous Lewis Chessmen to visit a museum at Hadrian's Wall. The exhibit is called "Around The World In 18 Games." Read the Guardian story.

And since we are in the business of selling games as well as celebrating them, we will point out that if you'd like a reproduction set of Lewis chessmen of your very own . . . that's what Warehouse 23 is for. (And you should follow the link even if you don't need another chess set, because it's got a lot of info about the history of the Lewis pieces.)
