In 1830, chess pieces were discovered among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey northwest of Leeds in West Yorkshire, England.  They were carved from walrus tusk around the 11th or 12th century in the Scandinavian countries.  The pieces can be found in the Museum of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
