Love this picture of a chess board.
Chess comes to us from India. It’s
over 1500 years old. Did you know orignally the board was black and white and they used animal chess pieces?
My heroine used such a board in Barbarossa’s Princess. Besides being a game, it has another use in the book.
Barbarossa’s Princess, 12th century Sicilians, Muslims, Germans, lust, violence intrigue. Get it on Amazon.
