Notes:

We have traces that the Norman-English delighted sometimes in sports more innocent [than bear-playing and cock-fighting]; we can fancy them sitting absorbed in the intellectual game of chess (Figs. 798, 800), or enjoying the fresh air, the green grass, the summer sun on the bowling-green (Fig. 794), or bursting with obstreperous laughter by the rustic fireside at the game of bob-apple (Fig. 787). (p. 215)

The triangular objects have no place in any modern game of bowls that I have seen. Maybe if you lose you have to sit on them?
