My gloom at returning to work (and the tsunami of marking) was considerably alleviated when I realised that there was a quiz hidden in the map in the Campus Close-up article (News, 8 January).
Instead of universities being situated in their real locations, THE has come up with a sort of geographical Call My Bluff and, after checking the map against my atlas, I think that I have the answers.
The University of the Highlands and Islands: looks like it’s in Stornoway…true; Newcastle University: appears to be in Middlesbrough…bluff; Lancaster University: it has seemingly migrated to Morecambe…bluff; Aston University: hmm, tricky, but it looks more like Ludlow…bluff; the University of Warwick: it seems to be in Worcester…bluff; the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama: in Bridgend?…bluff; The Open University: it is still in Milton Keynes…true; Reading University: I’m a bit vague on the Thames Valley, however…true; the University of Essex: smuggled up to Chelmsford…bluff. How did I score?
I’m looking forward to the next quiz; thanks for cheering me up!
