Catching up on past gigs – Heroes, June 14th 2010

It turns out that this was one of the last ever gigs at the Cross Kings on York Way. It’s sad to see such an important venue close, especially after showing us such a fantastic time.

Elis James took charge, and told us enough about his hero-worshipping past to make us all uncomfortable.

Matthew Robinson, Greek and Latin expert, revealed that the Romans’ two main interests were building things and killing people, and explained the hilarity this caused.

Matt Parker, mathematician, unlocked the maths behind some ancient mysteries. Like where Woolworths used to be.

Jason Dittmer, geographer, dug into a lucky dip full of nationalist superheroes and came up covered in Captain Britain.

Sarah Dhanjal, archaeologist, reminisced about Mortimer Wheeler, wore a fake moustache and tried to put the sex back into archaeology.

Maggie Gray, art historian, gave some very sensible advice about how to avoid Alan Moore putting a curse on you.

The Sound of The Ladies made sweet, sweet music to us all night long.
