Stone crushed resin chess pieces. Striking russet brown and cream colouring Superb detail. Matched perfectly with a deluxe walnut board. The Roman civilisation dates from the 8th century BC. Developing into the city of Rome and subsequently giving its name to the Empire over which it ruled. The Roman Empire expanded into one of the largest in the ancient world and through the many centuries of its existence evolved from a monarchy, to a classical republic to an autocratic empire. The Romans have contributed to modern law, politics, government, art, literature, warfare, technology, society, language and religion. This empire also achieved incredible architectural and engineering feats with the construction of an extensive network of roads and aqua-ducts as well as large monuments, palaces and public facilities. 
 The expert craftsmen of Berkeley Chess have recreated the imperious atmosphere of Rome with this classical chess set and we have matched it with a striking walnut deluxe board from Spain.
