About This Quiz

When Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser first falls through the stones and into the past, "Outlander" readers and viewers marveled at her ability to assimilate to a time so different from her own and wondered how we would fare if we ever found ourselves hundreds of years in the past.

The series is full of adventure, rebellion and the power of true love, and the heroes and heroines are forced to think quickly, sometimes in order to survive. At times, Claire must balance her knowledge of the future to come with the subordinate role of women in the 1700s. From something as simple as referring to Prussia as Germany to accidentally commenting on a young George Washington's affinity for chopping down cherry trees, she must navigate a whole new world, holding back secrets from the future all while helping to shape it. From the Battle of Culloden to the Revolutionary War, it is no easy task.

How would you fare if you were to take a trip through the stones and into a different era — and where, or rather, when would you find yourself? Take this "Outlander" quiz to find out what period calls to you and how you would approach living in a time now your own.
