Thirty pieces of Chinese Chess are recently unearthed from a tomb dating back to Northern Song Dynasty (960–1279) in Wang'an county, southwest China's Sichuan province.
The chess pieces are made of bronze. "If they really are from the Northern Song Dynasty, the archaeological value of them is priceless," said one of the members of the archaeological team.
