Some of the Lewis Chessmen, which are made from walrus ivory and whales' teeth and were discovered in 1831 on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, are pictured on display at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland April 30, 2014. Eleven of the ancient chess pieces dated from 1150-1200 AD, are kept at the National Museum of Scotland, and 82 are in the British Museum. Scottish separatists are closing the gap on their unionist rivals as a September independence referendum draws nearer, according to a poll. But pollster TNS said it would still be a "major task" for them to draw level in time. In a poll of 995 adults, TNS found that support for the pro-independence campaign had grown by two points to 32 percent compared with last month, while the campaign to reject independence had slipped back a point to 41 percent. In the run-up to the vote, Reuters photographer Suzanne Plunkett took a series of close-up pictures of food, drink and various objects typically associated with Scotland.
