About This Quiz

A period in history is a time frame in which significant world events occurred. Some periods may have only lasted a few decades while others lasted for centuries but the most spoken about periods include the Han Dynasty in China, the Ancient Roman Empire in the Mediterranean, the Era of the Mayans in Central and South America, the Elizabethan Period in the United Kingdom and the Viking Age in Scandinavia.

Taking a look back at history's timeline, every period was known for something, whether it was for the wars and conquests, inventions and scientific progress, artistry and explorations, death and disease, or the reign of the monarchs. While they all occurred at different points in time and whether they knew it at the time or not, they all had an effect on each other, shaping the world into what we know today.

Have you ever felt out of place, like you belonged in a different time period? Well, today is the day when you find out what it is. Will this quiz tell you that you belong in the time of Ancient Romans as the conquered foreign lands, or will it tell you that you belong in a time period that we have yet to experience? There's only one way to find out!
