History Quizzes and History Trivia

I found a large collection of history quizzes at http://www.funtrivia.com/. Obviously, I have seen many history quizzes on the Web. However, this site impressed my by the large number and variety of quizzes in the history categories. I spent several hours browsing and taking quizzes.

The description on the page notes, "Fascinating facts and tantalizing tidbits of history from all over the world, highlighting individuals, nations, conflicts ... anything and everything you're looking for is here for your playing pleasure. Quizzes on Royal Families and Dynasties are located in the People category."

I will list a few here as examples:

Modern Lao History

USAAF Aircraft of the Pacific

Bohemia and Moravia, 800-1620

Aztec Sacrifices

Wicked Women in the Ancient World

The quizzes are created by site users. As such, they may contain errors. However, the quizzes I took seemed to be factual. This site could also be used by teachers to create history themed quizzes for a course.
