You scored 86 on archaeology knowledge! Wow. You sure know your stuff, or are good at guessing. Either way, you know a lot about important places and events in archaeology. Good work.

The Do You Know Archaeology Test
http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=6316580983079451049 [Broken]

This test tracked 1 variable. How the score compared to the other people's:
Higher than 96% on knowledge

My take on the test - Some of these questions could have had other correct answers, I don't agree with some of the choices given. On some of the questions I had to choose which was less wrong instead of more correct. Tough test though.

You scored 43 on archaeology knowledge!

So you've had an intro course in archaeology perhaps and you remember some of the more important facts, but not them all. Don't worry, some of the questions were quite hard and not meant for most to get. Just keep studying your text books. And remember, archaeology isn't just about Rome, Greece, and Egypt.


Mostly guessing :smile: I have never taken an Anthro/Archo class, but I have taken western civilization, which may have helped for a question or two.

I guessed most of them.

Arildno, I would have thought you'd ace this one.

Half the time the answer I would have given was not a choice and I had to select an answer that at least could be close enough to be correct. If "none of the above" had been a choice, that's what I would have chosen.

You scored 66 on archaeology knowledge!
Maybe you haven't quite decided if you want to be an archaeology major yet, but you're definitely interested in the subject. Good work on getting more than half right. You got the basics, but not all of the details. Good work and keep studying!

You know the archaeology of Rome and Greece. Too bad that wasn't on the test. Good job at getting over half correct. Keep up the good work.


Very tough for an OK Cupid test. :P

There was a time when I wanted to become an archaeologist, thanks to the lesson on Harappa and Mohenjo-daro in history class; but that soon waned to give way for astronomy. :biggrin:

You've gotten some of the questions right, but you don't really know details yet. Keep studying and you eventually will.

Not bad for never taking an archaeology course, right? :rofl:
