About This Quiz
All of us want to feel we belong somewhere. While most of us feel at home in modern times, some of us just never quite feel we fit in. Maybe you have an inkling you belong in a different time period. Or maybe you're just mildly curious about what life was like in some bygone era.
While you probably don't want to abscond to the Stone Age, who knows? Maybe you have a yearning for that hunter-gatherer kind of thing. Maybe you are the type of person who would feel perfectly at home during the Middle Ages, or could the Renaissance be your cup of tea? Maybe you would have been a leader in colonial times, or are you the sort of tough hombre who would have rocked it during the Wild West? Maybe you're the type who would have loved to sit and listen to the Greek philosophers, or maybe you're the Victorian type and dream of walking arm in arm with a gentleman caller while spinning your parasol.
It's kind of hard to tell without hopping in the time machine and visiting, so that's why you're going to have to take this quiz to find out!
