The primitive dice which have been found in excavations in England might also be mentioned. These date from the invasion of England by the Romans and are possibly part of the benefits spread by that civilisation. The longbone of an animal such as a deer was taken and shaved so that it was reasonably square in cross-section (Fig. 3). A piece of bone was then cut so that it formed a cube.
