Knuckle Bone Wallpaper

Astragaloi wallpaper design.

Inspired by a recent thread on the zooarch (zooarchaeology) jiscmail forum concerning knuckle bone floors.

Knucklebones (also known as hucklebones, dibs, dibstones, jackstones, chuckstones or five-stones), is a game of very ancient origin, played with five small objects, originally the ‘knucklebones’ (actually the astragalus: a bone in the ankle or ‘hock of a sheep).
