we found Only 13 as many as five broken chips as well as dice. Scientists suggest that the ancient traders or travelers of high social status played in latrunculi to pass the time on the road.

the ancient Roman game is a bit like checkers. Played by two players on a Board 8×8, moving simple pieces and trying to turn them into kings. Latrunculi was a very popular game, on it events have been held.

so far, these discoveries didn’t happen neither in Norway nor in Scandinavia.
