Knucklebones and dice game set

Bones are one of the earliest forms of "dice." These "bones" are full-sized (about 1.5" long), anatomically correct and molded in resin from actual sheep bones.

Knucklebones or man-made facsimiles of them continued to be used for children's games right up until the early 20th century.

The set comes in a draw-string pouch with 5 "bones", 6 standard wooden dice, and a 20-page booklet of dice games dating prior to 1700 as well as rules for "fivestones" and an acient form of divination using knuckebones.
