I am absolutely fascinated by these little chess pieces and have written numerous times about them. If you are interested in reading my past posts, please see my list of tags on the left side of the page and click “Lewis Chess Men”.
News came out this week about an agreement that has been made between Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) and the British Museum.
Beginning 2014, the Museum will loan six pieces to the new Lews Castle museum in Stornoway. The Chess Men have previously only been displayed on the islands on a short-term basis but there was a five-month exhibition last year which brought an audience of more than 23,000 visitors.
They were originally discovered on the west coast of Lewis, beneath a sand dune near Uig, at some point before April 1831.
