About This Quiz

There's a place in Germany called Baden-Wurttemberg that is known for a very old mountain range called the Swabian Jura. In some caves in these mountains back in 1939, archaeologists uncovered an amazing find. Evidence of some of the earliest humans ever, from 40,000 years in the past. Among the tools and other relics, they discovered a figure carved from the tusk of a mammoth. They called it the "lion man." The little figure had the body of a man and the head of a lion. For all intents and purposes, this may very well have been the first mythical creature in existence. Whatever it may have been, whatever purpose it served in the stories or culture of the people that carved it, one thing is for certain.
