Scaccarrium

The name of the theme used for this Drupal site is Scaccarium, designed by one BWPanda, to whom are due many thanks.  The word scaccarium comes from medieval Latin scaccarium 'chessboard', from scaccus, itself a derivation of the Persian shah ('king'). By another route, scaccarium led to the Old French word eschiquier, and from there to the
