Helen Keen

The Science of Game of Thrones
About the event

Award-winning comedian and popular-science writer Helen Keen (Radio 4’s It Is Rocket Science!) uncovers the astounding science behind the world’s most popular television show, answering questions such as: Do dragons actually exist? What really happened when royal families interbreed? How does wildfire win wars? Can you really kill someone with molten gold? Is it possible to crush a person’s head with your bare hands? Join Helen as she sifts the fact from fantasy, discovers the truth beneath the togas, and reveals a world more fantastical than Daenerys Targaryen’s wildest dreams. A myth-busting, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping and fun-filled expedition that is perfect for nerds, fans, and geeks everywhere. So pour yourself a bowl of brown, climb on your beast of burden, and prepare yourself for an amazing adventure. It’s time to see the Seven Kingdoms as you have never seen them before.
