"The delicate piece of bone in the centre was found on the site of the Guillaume-Estèbe House, built around 1752 in the Lower Town of Quebec. It is likely an imported piece, belonging to a refined imported set. But a set of what? A piece like this one could just as well have been moved around a checkers board, as on board of trictrac or backgammon in between throws of dice. The dominos, for their part, date only to the British Regime."
