On Wednesday we went to the museum to see The Lewis Chessmen for a school trip. The Lewis Chessmen were found on the Outer Hebrides berried on the isle of Lewis. The Lewis Chessmen are very valuable; they are made out of walrus ivory or whale’s teeth. Lucy and Yvonne gave us the tour.
The King is the most important piece of chess; the King sits next to the Queen and the Bishop.
The Queen is the second most important piece of chess and she sits next to the King and another Bishop.
The Bishops always hold curly staffs and they resemble people that go to church. One sits next to the Queen and the Knight and the other sits next to the King and the other Knight.
The Knight Chess piece is a person riding a horse and it is the only chess piece that can jump over other chess pieces. They sit next to Bishops and Berserkers.
Berserkers were made biting their shields and they also had googly eyes because they resembled people that took drugs and fought enemies.
