Balls, made of husks of corn, covered in material such as leather, and bound with string were made. Other balls, made of porcelain or even plastic, also exist, indicating that these were rolled along the ground, rather than thrown, due to their size and weight

About 2,000 years ago a similar game evolved between Roman legionaries, which entailed tossing stone objects as close as possible to other stone objects. This eventually evolved into Italian Bocce, or outdoor bowling as we know it today.

Fortunately here in sunny South Devon, TLH Leisure Resort has a close association with a number of outdoor clubs situated in glorious locations ranging from seaside to moorland. And the only husks of corn you're likely to see are those growing in the fields.
