The Lewis Chessmen

| 1 Comment

On Wednesday we went to see The Lewis Chessman at the Shetland Museum.

The Lewis Chessmen were found in Lewis. They are about 1000 years old. Historians guess that they were made in Trondheim in Norway because The Vikings could have gone to Greenland to get the walrus tusk to make The Lewis Chessmen. They were made from Walrus tusk, whale teeth or shark teeth.

Yvonne and Lucy gave us a tour and told us about The Lewis Chessman. We also drew our favourite chess piece; my favourite was a pawn that had a fancy pattern on it. Lewis Chessmen pictures. The Lewis chessman pieces were in glass cases so that they couldn’t be broken. When we were in groups and us big ones were talking to Yvonne and Lucy, there were some plastic figures of them! The plastic replicas looked exactly like the real Chessmen!

  1. A good report – I like the bit about “Historians think…”; I wonder if they will ever know for sure? I’m impressed by your correct use of ;. 🙂
