Quiz: Victorian Era

Updated on May 29, 2011

Queen Victoria awaits you

This is a Mega Quiz (i.e. Mega Points!).

This amazing period of British history is worth a special quiz - this was an era of discovery, of industry, of engineering, of exploration, of science, of literature, of art and of so many other facets of life that blossomed in these times.

It is an immensely popular period in our modern world for antiques, for period dramas, for novels, for traditions (including Christmas) and for history.

There were great military achievements (and some disasters).

It was a period of transition from 'historical' times to 'modern' times.

I hope you enjoy delving into this fascinating era with my 'little' quiz. Actually, it's a massive quiz. Good luck!
