From Egypt to Monterey's Custom House

"The objective of bocce ball is to try and to come as close to a fixed target as possible. It began in 5000 BC when Egyptians played it with polished rocks and is recorded as having come to Greece in 800 BC where the Romans picked it up and spread the word throughout their country. The Romans named the game bocce from the Latin bottia which means boss".
