More information about Final Jeopardy:
Founded by the Spanish in 1565, St. Augustine, Florida claims to be the oldest city in the United States. After Hurricane Matthew hit in 2016, a local wine shop sustained damage and decided to undergo renovations. During the renovations, the building’s owner offered the city archaeologist a chance to look under his shop, where the skeletal remains of a number of early inhabitants of St. Augustine were found. It was surmised that the burial occurred there because a Catholic church had been located on the site in the 16th century.

- In yesterday’s comment section, Eric noted that he was hoping for Robin to not bet to cover. Looks like he was a day off in his hope.
- An astute opponent in the audience might note Robin’s gambit here and adjust their betting strategy accordingly. This might work in Robin’s favor going forward.
