Reproduction Game Board

A reproduction game board based on one found at Coppergate, York

A reproduction oak game board based on one from Coppergate, York. This is a larger-than-usual Hnefatafl board with no significant squares marked out. Gaming pieces have been laid out on it in some of the photographs, but it is likely that a board this size would require more pieces on the outer edges (the attackers).
