GALLOWAY, N.J. -

Stockton University's Game of Thrones inspired class will be holding a marketplace and tournament next week.

On Thursday, April 18th, the Games of Thrones in Premodern Literature & Film class will sponsor a Medieval Marketplace and Tournament from 3 to 5 p.m. in Independence Plaza on the Galloway campus.

The marketplace will have exhibits and projects by the Game of Thrones class and a classical music ensemble of Stockton students will perform music from Game of Thrones.

The Knights of Crossford, a historical re-enactment troupe, that also helps run the NJ Renaissance Faire, will hold interactive training exercises and a faux tournament display as they parley and "fight to the death."

The class is taught by Assistant Professor of Critical Thinking and First-Year Studies Geoffrey Gust and uses the show to study history, film, literature, and writing during the semester.
