Jeopardy Final Question—Historical Structures

If you already saw Jeopardy please don’t spoil it. If not, see if you can answer this question:

Pope Sixtus’ death in 1590 ended his plan to convert this, still in Rome today, to a wool factory to emplot city prostitutes.

First one to get it right gets a free history book from me. History book as in not a textbook history book. [Either that or you can opt for a $15 Starbucks giftcard. Your choice]

And no Googling or looking it up……that would be cheating.

  1. It’s a guess, but I’m going to say the Colisseum.

  2. Is it the Colosseum?

  3. A great question – i’d give the answer, but I looked it up.

    Wasn’t in the Jeopardy mindset to guess.

    An interesting pope – recently read a good fiction book on him.

  4. You guys are good. It is the Coliseum. Guess the next question will be tougher.

    Jimmie was the first to get it correct. So Jim, leave me your choice [a history book—my choosing :)—and leave me your address in a comment. No worries, I will not approve the comment so no one will see your address but me.

    Good job guys and look for another question soon. Gotta go research it now…

  5. I don’t think Jimmie should win since he spelled it wrong! Hee Hee 😉
    Just kidding…. maybe.

  6. Christy,
    What a sore loser! lol Even as a grammar whiz, I misspelled it as well. So my fault too. 🙂 No grammar rules here…as long as I can tell what it is.

  7. My address: [edited]

    And a book would be fine. Any hint what it might be? 😉

  8. Jimmie,

    I guess I should tell you the book just in case you already have it. It’s Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough. It’s the life story of Teddy Roosevelt.

    If you have it already, that’s fine. I have a few others I could send so just let me know!

  9. You have to answer in the form of a question.
    The correct answer is

    What is the Colosseum?

    I win
