Wednesday evening 14 November 2018: lustrum edition of the “Enige Echte Egypte Pubquiz”, organized by Friends of Saqqara at the National Museum of Antiquities, as part of their 200th anniversary celebrations.
Who will win the coveted title ‘best Ancient Egypt connoisseur in the Low Countries’? Our pub quiz will test the contestants’ knowledge of Ancient Egypt through questions on art, history, archaeology, religion, literature and language – but also on famous museum objects, Egyptomania and the Saqqara necropolis. New this year: a crowd source round, with questions sent in by our public.
A pub quiz is not a pub quiz without drinks and nibbles. The museum’s Taffeh Hall is our pub for the evening, with consumptions available from the bar.
The scholarly soundness of the questions and answers is ensured by our expert jury. At the end of the evening, they will decide who wins the title and the honour. The three best teams, as well as the team to come in last, will receive prizes.
Quiz questions wanted!
New in our Egypt Pubquiz is the crowd source round. Have you got a clever Egypt pub quiz question that only you know the answer to? Mail your question to firstname.lastname@example.org ! When the Quizmaster comes to your question, you will have an immediate advantage over your competitors.
What to submit?
· A multiple choice question related to ancient Egypt (archaeology, monuments, texts etc.), to Egyptology, excavators, explorers, or to modern (popular) culture containing ancient Egyptian elements.
· A relevant illustration, or possibly a sound fragment (if you don’t have an original in your possession, a reference to an online image, video or sound fragment will do).
· The correct answer, and optionally one or more (misleading) incorrect answers.
The organizers of the Egypt Pubquiz reserve the right to rephrase questions and answers submitted and chosen for the quiz. We are very excited to learn which obscure trivia you can come up with!
