Lockdown Learning: African History Quizzes

Ramses II
I am woefully ignorant about African history, as evidenced by the fact that I struggled to answer any of the questions in these quizzes. For those of us who know little about African history, these quizzes leave us with no excuse.

Sample Quiz: Mutiny on the BountiesHow did various African countries gain their independence from the European colonial powers?

Sample Question:

When the scramble for Africa took place in the late 19th century, one nation found itself split into five territories, controlled by France, Italy, Britain and one of its eastern African neighbours. On gaining independence, the British and Italian territories were re-combined and the new country adopted a five-pointed star on its flag to represent the five territories that it wished to bring back together. Which country failed in its attempts at reconciliation and slid into anarchy in the late 1990s?
  • Somalia
  • Mozambique
  • Kenya
  • Mauritania
This is an absolutely brilliant site. The answers to each question are very lengthy and detailed. This is a great way to learn African history. 

This site lists a number of quizzes about African history and culture, focusing on different African regions and countries.  

Sample Question: Ramses II was known most for two qualities. Choose the two below. 
  • Education support
  • Monuments
  • Peacetime
  • Trade
  • Military leader

I am listing resources for the Coronavirus lockdown, including meditation, relaxation, music, financial abundance resources, humour and more, here
