"Carrow", although not a valid answer for this quiz, is an archaic word meaning "an itinerant gambler" - Irish in origin. Norwich City play at Carrow Road, so I wondered if Carrow might be a word... Carrow used to be the name of a medieval village just outside the city. This area is now known as Bracondale, and lies well within the city boundary.

I tried spelling "epee" (like the sword) as "epie", but when I checked afterwards, I found out that "Epie" is a language spoken in Nigeria. It should be accepted too, I think.
