Task of the Week: Age of Cervantes
On June, 15th and 16th, the MoMaTrE partners from Frankfurt und Spain met in Alcala de Henares near Madrid in order to fix aims and tasks for the project.
In this context, we created ceveral tasks enjoying the sunny Spanish weather. The Spanish architecture as well as the historical importance of the city allowed various questions. The Task of the Week focuses on the age of the author of Don Quijote, Miguel de Cervantes. The group photo was taken in front of his birthplace.
Task: Age of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (Task number: 4031)
Determine the age of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
The task’s solution is very obvious, as both, his year of birth and death are marked on the entrance of the building. The difference results in the correct solution. Nevertheless, the task is a nice example for cultural references which can be forced through further information on the object.
