Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Dartmouth in Devon, England, is named for the fact that it is located on the west bank of the Dart River. It has been of major strategic importance in England for centuries, especially in the Middle Ages, as a deepwater port. In North America, Dartmouth names the Nova Scotia location on the eastern shore of Halifax Harbour (prior to 1996, it was its own city, but was amalgamated into Halifax at that point), and, of course, the New Hampshire Ivy League university in Hanover.
