    Here's a bit of trivia for you PJ. It isn't clear when the crossbow originated, but there is evidence that it was used by the military from the mid 4th century BC onwards. The earliest evidence for it in Europe dates back to the 5th century BC.

    jacks, it's logical that the more quizzes you play the more bits of Trivia you'll remember, not everything of course, but those certainly those answers you find personally interesting will lodge themselves. So you may be right!

    Interesting - didn't know the crossbow was so old. (#1)

    I didn't have a problem with the timer, didn't even notice it so don't worry David, ain't broke so why fix? BTW I actually did know a couple of the answers. could it be that because of you 2, I'm getting more intelligent????????
  • Prasutagus said on 15-Aug-2012, 5 years ago
    I dunno David, jacks has beaten me before, the problem lately seems to be her making a habit of it! As regards the timing on the quiz, I didn't feel there was a problem with that.... it was purely my hastiness that let me down. I wouldn't be inclined to adjust it unless others have a problem.
  • davidcalvert said on 15-Aug-2012, 5 years ago
    That's deserving of an entry in your diary, surely!

    Interesting quiz, a few lucky guesses & a few unlucky ones. I actually managed to beat Prag.

    Thanks for the kind remarks on the the quiz. When researching for it I came across the problem of perspective early on and tried, where possible, to find pics that enhanced the perspective, such as the Roman soldier next to his particular weapon. Perhaps I shouldn't have put a time limit on the quiz, thereby allowing for a closer look at the pics. Will certainly bear it in mind for future quizzes. Cheers.
  • Prasutagus said on 15-Aug-2012, 5 years ago
    One or two of those snaps looked suspiciously like other weapons. Unfortunately the Romans built certain weapons in an array of sizes and some of the big ones cause their initial appearance to be confusing - and I fell for it by not studying the pics closely enough! Excellent quiz though and I should have done much better.
