About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 29 November 2023

In 1915, Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, was purchased at auction by Cecil Chubb, a resident of the same county. Originally acquired as a whimsical gift for his wife, Chubb later chose to gift it to the British government in 1918, driven by a commitment to preserve the site and maintain public access.

Dating back to approximately 3000 BC, Stonehenge is renowned for its ring of standing stones enclosed by earthworks. Archaeologists believe the monument was built in phases, starting with a simple circular ditch and bank, likely used for ceremonial or religious activities.

By the early 20th century, Stonehenge had deteriorated due to neglect and vandalism, raising concerns about its future. Chubb’s purchase of the site for £6,600 was impulsive, intended as a present for his wife, who reportedly did not appreciate the gesture. In 1918, understanding the importance of Stonehenge, Chubb donated it to the nation, stipulating conditions for its preservation and the continuation of public access, including free admission for local residents. While this policy has since changed to include an entrance fee, the site remains a pivotal cultural and historical landmark.

Stonehenge has been a legally protected Scheduled Ancient Monument since 1882 and was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986, cementing its status as a symbol of British cultural heritage. It continues to be a site of immense archaeological interest and a popular destination for tourists from around the world.

Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.

Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.

Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
