Nine Men's Morris is an ancient game that has been around for so long that its origins have been lost to history! Not only did the Vikings play it, but so did the Egyptians and the Romans. Learn more about this game and follow the instructions to play it!

Extras

Even though the Vikings traveled the world by sea for over 300 hundred years, they left very few monuments behind. To understand their culture, many people tried to understand the runic writing found on their artifacts. This ancient language can be found inscribed on nearly everything, including stones, jewelry, weapons and even shoes!
