Put your knowledge of East Sussex history and culture with The Keep’s Quarantine Quiz!
The Keep, based in Falmer, is the county’s archive centre. There is a wonderful range of material in the archive, and it’s is currently partially open to visitors via a booking system.
During the lockdown earlier this year, The Keep was closed to the public. Looking for ways to engage remotely with residents, their archivists devised a series of quizzes inspired by the collections in their care. So, if you missed it first time around, now is your chance to give the East Sussex Quarantine Quiz a go!
For example, do you know…
- Which Sussex farm had ‘something nasty in the woodshed’?
- Who discovered a dinosaur in a Sussex quarry?
- Where and when did the deadliest avalanche in Britain take place?
- Which lady had a house named after her, but never visited?
- The detail from the engraving shown below illustrates the aftermath of a shipwreck off Beachy Head in 1747. What was the name of the ship?
Take on these questions, or just learn a bit more about East Sussex, in the quizzes now!
