D'oh! I know Sheffield, but in my mind it's associated mainly with it's theater where some of the snooker tournaments are played.

The theater is called the Crucible and it only hosts one tournanment: The World Snooker Championship. Of course it's the oldest and most prestiguous snooker championship, and so some people would call the Crucible the Church of Snooker and the world trophy the Holy Grail of trophies that every snooker player dreams of getting. I know it doesnt mean much for non-snooker fans but for non-britons who happen to enjoy snooker and have never used a knife and fork forged in Sheffield's steel furnaces this is mostly what Sheffield means to them, especially since the steel industry declined there of late. For those wo'd like to know the final of the 2017 world championship was held just a few days ago and Mark Selby came victorious after beating four-time champion John Higgins.

When I read "Capital of Andalusia," my first thought was, "The animated city from 'Enchanted'?!" Nope... that's Andalasia. Whoops.

I think you should accept "Yr Wyddfa" for Mount Snowdon because that's what it is in Welsh.

Snowden worked for me.

I guess instead of Russia, maybe he's actually hiding in that mountain?

Ha! Always thought that Verdun was the bloodiest battle of WWI. I guess it's because it was shorter and had more casualties per day. Anyway, I stand corrected.

i think that the somme battle is more ill-famed in UK because it was mainly fought by british expeditionary force, even if french contribution was strong, particularly in southeastern sector.

Would appreciate accepting Soumi for Suomi; I knew the essence of the answer, and it's as unusual a word as many for which misspellings are accepted.
