I hope you enjoy these mostly very short quizzes.

The format of the quizzes varies, but the majority of the multiple choice quizzes are five questions long. The daily trivia challenge is just a single question with a multiple choice answer each day for 365 days. It is a page you might bookmark so you can return to it often.

Javascript: Many of these quizzes involve Javascript, so make sure you turn on that capacity on your computer.

Answers: Almost all are self-grading, although some of the older ones don't provide answers, but refer to articles on the site with answers implicitly or explicitly stated in those articles.

I have no access to your responses, so please do not be embarrassed to guess. Most will not break or refuse to go further if you skip a question or three.

Just for Fun: Some of these quizzes are pseudo-psychological quizzes; others test your familiarity with historical and mythological concepts mentioned in articles on this site. The most popular are of the pseudo-psychological type like Which Roman Are You? or Which Greek Goddess Are You?

Skill Levels: Some of the questions are exceedingly easy; others, equally obscure. I try to make sure there is a range generally within a given test, but in some areas, like calendars, there are different levels of quizzes.

Alphabetical Order: The order is alphabetical, but if you're looking for a quiz on specifics, like calendars, you will need to scour the list: there is one under C (for calendar), others under J (for Julian and Jewish), and another under R (for Roman).

The list of quizzes should keep growing, so check back again in a few months for more.
