Quiz WriterChantelle

Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Do You Know When Human History Began?

According to archaeologists, human history began with the appearance of modern humans—or homo sapiens—in Africa. Through fossil evidence, they date this appearance to 200,000 B.C. Over time, these humans learned to create and use bows and arrows and other types of weaponry. They invented pottery and formed tribes with lifestyles based on hunting and gathering. They also moved around. According to historians, humans crossed the Bering Sea by 25,000 B.C.  and at the tip of the South American continent by 10,000 B.C. Our quiz begins with the development of the first civilizations in Mesopotamia. Put on your thinking caps and begin.
