ancient game playing?

nice objects...

finish the game and beat the Spaniards...

These two artificially rounded rocks were dug up when we were excavating our garden to put in new beds and landscaping. The locals stroked their beards and pronounced them to be bowls - but ancient cheap bowls, like French boules, not the rounded biased wooden bowls the English regard as an institution.

The former pub that we inhabit gives a clue as to how these could get abandoned in the garden - which was first part of a pub, before 1600AD...

games have been played in this country for so very long, and I guess that on summer nights before we became a more indoor people, this would have been a popular pastime...
