A Most Noble And Ancient Quiz

Are you a crazy for Cuneiform? Mad for Mithras? Loony for Lammasus? If any of that made sense to you, or even if it didn't, you may want to head down to Koerner's Pub on the University of British Columbia campus for a quiz night in support of From Stone To Screen. The event is being held by the UBC Department of Classical, Near Eastern, and Religious Studies, and I'm positive they'll put on an excellent quiz. It starts at 6 P.M. on April 22nd, costs $5 per person to enter, and promises fun, excitement, door prizes, and if you're lucky, some questions on Galen, Gibbons, and Gaius Valerius Flaccus — the original "GGG." But why take my word for it? From their facebook page:

Challenge your professors & TA's in a battle of wits and trivial knowledge! This is general knowledge trivia, not specifically Classics or Archaeology related. Invite your friends from other departments or outside of UBC! 

Door prizes, raffle and a 50/50 draw! There will also be a special prize for the best team name, as decided by our Trivia hosts.

Proceeds will go toward From Stone to Screen’s conference travel and digitization equipment, and help fund the 2015 CNERS Graduate Student Conference, Total Recall: The Manipulation of Memory in the Ancient World ( for details).
