This quiz has been majorly reworked so I deleted the comments which mostly no longer apply. That said, this quiz has a large number of possible questions, so there are probably still lots of small errors that need correcting. The total time spent creating this quiz might be about 10 hours. Whew.

Not sure much can be done, but there's at least two sets of questions where you get the answer to another question by typing one. Slavery answered Slavs and Rio Grande answered Rio. Not sure how I managed to get Maurya empire, if some sort of typo of Maria got me that?

Changed some of the questions and type-ins so that won't happen anymore.

Minor edit—Soekarno is an alternate spelling of Sukarno (and is in fact the spelling of the airport in Jakarta named after him). I realize it's Dutch spelling, but I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't take. :)

Minor niggle, just to show I'm concentrating. On the UK section, England didn't fight a war with France in the 18th Century, Great Britain did.

The answer for the Peruvian animal domestication question is incorrect. The animal given in the answer was domesticated thousands of years before the time period asked in the question. The phrasing of the question is asking about an animal that became domesticated during that specific time period, not one that was already domesticated prior to it. There is a significant difference between those two concepts. I was surprised the correct answer wasn't accepted while the incorrect answer was, especially when the correct answer is far more interesting. :) Please review and thank you for many years of enjoyment with these terrific quizzes!

Source? From sources I've seen 5000 BC seems to be correct.

"Who was the only archduchess of Austria?" could perhaps be more clear as "Who was the only *ruling* archduchess of Austria?" There have been plenty of other Archduchesses (Elisabeth Marie, Isabella, Luise, etc.).

For Cuba I got the question "What was dictator of Cuba before that?", but the answer is a person.

I'm shocked that no history questions seem to mention Communist Ethiopia, even if it mentions the famine they caused. Do they just no longer exist?

The "Cradle of Civilization" most commonly refers to the Fertile Crescent, not solely Mesopotamia. Check the wikipedia entry for Fertile Crescent if you don't believe me. The question about Mesopotamia should be reworded, or Fertile Crescent should also be accepted.
