Letter #14 - 2008
In your History of Chess page you state:
“The finest original copy of ‘The Book of the Dead’ is the Papyrus of Ani, now one of the treasures of the British Museum in London.
Written by a royal scribe, this scroll is 78 feet long and 15 feet inches wide, wonderfully illustrated in colour.
It also contains an illustration of the resurrection of the scribe Ani himself and his wife Tutu, who are depicted playing Chess”.
Ani is not playing Chess. He is playing Senet.
This error has been already corrected.
Thank you for letting us know.
Sennedjem and wife playing Senet
