We humans instinctively know that we are just tiny flashes of life in a much bigger arc of existence. Our careers, families and our own bodies appear and disappear in just a few decades — just a blink of an eye compared to the history of our species. For thousands of years, humans have roamed most of planet Earth, building agricultural resources, domesticating animals, building basic tools and, of course, gathering in both small villages and massive metropolitan areas. In this quiz, what do you really think you know about ancient history?
From the birthplace of humanity to the first towns and cities, our civilizations are nothing new. Cities have been built, destroyed, and rebuilt, often dozens or hundreds of times since human beings populated areas suited for farming and livestock production. What do you know about the earliest successful settlements?
Primitive humans relied on caves and basic structures for shelter. Some mastered things like the wheel — others somehow managed to build amazing buildings without ever realizing the wheel’s potential. From the Stone Age to the Iron Age, what do you know about humankind’s advances in history?
The ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians wielded immense power in their lands. Kings and queens dominated cultural affairs, dictated the lives of their subjects, and sometimes enslaved or even sacrificed their own people.
