Corbridge Roman Site Gaming board with dice and counters
This is a Roman gaming board with dice and counters. The board is made of stone and marked out in squares. It is likely that it would have been used for a game like draughts. The counters and dice are made of carved bone and pottery. The orange coloured ones are made from fragments of a type of imported Roman pottery known as Samian ware.
