The Ballinderry Game Board was found in 1932 during the
excavation of a "crannog", or lake dwelling at Ballinderry, West Meath,
Ireland. The board is 9.5 inches square. The border decorations carved
into it are similar to those found on the Isle of Man dating from the 10th
century A.D. Although scholars have argued whether it is an example of
"Fidchell," or "Brandubh" board (both games mentioned in early Irish texts)
they generally agree it is probably related to Scandinavian "Tafl" games.
