Hnefatafl - popular Norse board game that pre-dates Chess. One side, the white pieces in this set, plays a thane defending a territory. The other side plays invaders. When Chess became more popular it was common to use one's Hnefatafl pieces as chessmen. The famous Lewis Chess Set is believe to be partly made up of repurposed Hnefatafl pieces.
