Historic link to the past

Have your say

I WAS interested in the references to the Nordic kingdom of Sodor and Man and the ‘Lewis Chessmen’ in today’s Examiner (November 1). When those chess-pieces were carved, the original Diocese of Sodor and Man existed, so the Bishop pieces were Bishops of Sodor and Man. (I have a copy of the seated bishop, given to me coincidentally by a Canadian bishop who didn’t realise the connection!)
