For those who like this kind of thing: The ultimate summer holiday quiz , provided by the Daily Telegraph . It’s actually sixteen quizes, two each in eight categories. The first three questions in “Art and Literature” are, for example:

1 Which 1851 novel was first published in Britain under the title The Whale ?
2 The Bennet family appear in which Jane Austen novel?
3 Which painter is associated with the Stour valley on the Essex/Suffolk border?

Unrelated to this but also from the Daily Telegraph : Historians Locate King Arthur’s Round Table . “[R]ather than it being a piece of furniture, historians believe it would have been a vast wood and stone structure which would have allowed more than 1,000 of his followers to gather.”
