A myth-busting, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping and fun-filled expedition through the world of Game of Thrones.

Do dragons actually exist?

Is it possible to crush a person's head with your bare hands?

What really happened when royal families interbreed?

How does wildfire win wars?

Can you really kill someone with molten gold?

Award-winning comedian and popular-science writer Helen Keen uncovers the astounding science behind the world's most popular television show. Join Helen as she sifts the fact from fantasy, discovers the truth beneath the togas, and reveals a world more fantastical than Daenerys Targaryen's wildest dreams. So pour yourself a bowl of brown, climb on your beast of burden, and prepare yourself for an amazing adventure. It's time to see the Seven Kingdoms as you have never seen them before.
