I also. Never heard of the other one. The UK one was founded in 995 although a settlement probably existed there since around 2000BC. I presume that the Durham mentioned in the question must have a longer history than that?

Ditto, but knew there weren't any beginning with R so assumed there must be an American Durham too - since these quizzes tend to be more American than British.

The Durham/Chapel Hill clue is a little obscure for Raleigh. Maybe you could change it to a reference to Sir Walter Raleigh, that speaks more to you know, the rest of the world?

I'm from the US and had no trouble with Raleigh, but i was all set to whine about the obscurity of a low-cost Irish airline until I saw that 66% of the takers got that one. Either we have a lot of people on this site from the British Isles, or else we have a lot of cheap travelers. :)

Not just Europeans, but people who have traveled in Europe probably know Ryanair. As for Canadians, more of us would reference it as the home of the Carolina Hurricanes than for its proximity to Duke and UNC.

Nice quiz. In a few countries (might be those with Persian influence at an early stage of adopting Islam?) "Ramadan" is read and pronounced "Ramazan." Might be worth a type-in.

Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill are the centers of the Research Triangle of world-class universities, medical schools, and high-tech businesses. It isn't obscure, but probably not as well known outside of the US.
