If you’ve fallen behind in your studies because you spend too much time obsessing over "Game of Thrones," don’t worry. The University of British Columbia has your back.
This spring, the Canadian college will offer an English course which examines how George R.R. Martin’s popular "A Song of Ice and Fire" series shapes our modern understanding of medieval history.
The epic saga is loosely based on the 15th century War of the Roses, with the real-life York and Lancaster families serving as the inspiration for the bitter feud between the Starks and Lannisters.
