    Long-lost Lewis Chessman found in Edinburgh family's drawer


    A medieval chess piece that was missing for almost 200 years had been unknowingly kept in a drawer by an Edinburgh family.

    They had no idea that the object was one of the long-lost Lewis Chessmen - which could now fetch 1m at auction.

        That's a cool looking miniature!
        They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

          I could have painted it better.

            I would agree with you, only I'm not sure it's even painted.
