Thank you for trying. It seems that world history is just something that you don't have a strong foundational knowledge of. The great story of humanity is something that you haven't put all the pieces together for. Maybe a trip to the library to get some starter books would be useful. We can follow that up with some excellent documentaries and even some historical movies.

Good job! You got a good number of the events correct, but missed some of the more difficult questions. History seems to be a topic that you pay attention to, but don't actively pursue. Maybe it is time to enjoy a few good documentaries on the History Chanel.

Congratulations! You did a great job on the quiz. You had no trouble with the common knowledge questions and even some of the more difficult questions. History is a topic that you are interested in and have a good understanding of the major events in the last several hundred years.
