Dare you take the Histatic Quiz?

We recently had an opening evening at our school where parents of Year 6 students came for a visit. The history department devised a histatic quiz for the children and their parents to take part in while they enjoyed their time in Humanities! Dare you take the quiz? Here are the questions:

1. How many Children did Elizabeth I have?
2. What Nationality was Hitler?
3. Which dictator's name translates as 'Man of Steel'?
4. What was the last battle fought on British mainland?
4. Which statesman was assassinated on 4th April 1968?
5. What important figure in medicine carried an owl in their pocket?
6. What cards were Bill Hickock holding when he was killed?

Post your answers!

well done-you scored 5 out of 7!

The last battle fought on British mainland was the Battle of Cullodon

Bill Hickock was holding two 8's and two Aces from a deck of cards.

Thanks for doing the quiz!
