      Irvine Herald [UK], Jun 3 2011

      A SLATE found by an eight-year-old volunteer during last year's
      archaeological dig in Kilwinning is a medieval gaming board. During the
      winter months, archaeologists and volunteers at Rathmell Archaeology in
      Kilwinning have been cleaning up the finds of the five-week dig. And a
      piece of slate found by eight-year-old Callum Burns, seen here, was
      among the treasures. Callum found two medieval gaming boards and a tile
      with script on it. This week, archaeologist Tom Rees said three of the
      slates found were gaming boards while one tile has pictures carved into
      it.
