It's a huge subject -- backgammon is the modern remnant of an enormous
and ancient family of games. There are a bunch of links on the topic on
the Period Games Rules Page:

Scroll down to "Tables Games", in the "Board Games" section. "Tables" is
the generic period term for this family of board games...
