12th Century Games
I took along a couple of 12th century games for people to have a go at. This is Nine Men's Morris, which has been played since the time of the ancient Egyptians. The layout has been found carved into stomes on the pyramids. However, that doesn't mean the ancient Egyptians put them there - it may mean they were carved by the people who discovered the Egyptians!
