Learning history is important because it helps us to understand our past, which in turn allows us to make more sense of the current world. The events and wars that happened previously all play a part in shaping the world as we know it today and how our lives came to be this way. Studying history can provide us with insight into our cultures and places of origin as well as cultures with which we might be less familiar, thereby increasing cross-cultural awareness and understanding.
We often hear that "history repeats itself," but even so, if we study the successes and failures of the past, we may be able to learn from our mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future.
If you would like to test your knowledge about history, then you should take this quiz and find out how much of a world history know-it-all you actually are.
