About This Quiz

While wars and battles today are fought through technology and superior weaponry, back in the day it wasn't like that at all. Wars used to be won by the side that had the most excellent warriors, men, and sometimes women, who were the most powerful, agile, and brutal fighters in the land.  

While many ancient cultures celebrated their gains in culture, civilization, and art, many others prided themselves on having the fiercest warriors around. Some of these warriors would fight without any arms whatsoever, while others used some of the finest weapons known to man, some were a part of vast armies Spartans would be a good example of this, while other ancient warriors, such as Samurais or Ninjas fought all by themselves.
