Playing Marbles With Vertebrae Of Sheep

Recommended Posts

Apparently vertebrae and other bones were sometimes called "knucklebones" and they may have been a precursor to our jacks.

... and in Mongolia, anklebones could be flicked like marbles for game play.

Maybe "marbles" was used by whoever labeled the photo because he couldn't think of a better term.
