The older form of chess, shatranj, was known in
Europe no later than the 10th century CE, 500 years earlier
such a tale is like
asking someone on LSD to validate the dream of an opium smoker.
Where is your support for this claim?
I do not believe that this is true.
Were you on opium or on LSD when you made this statement?
New, another writting support on Jne 100u8 was found by myself some days ago: 'scacos cristallinos XXVIII ' ( pieces of crystal rock in number of 28 ). Another sources in 1047 and 1066, yhe same pieces ( Northern Spain, close Urgell Count )
