Historic Scotland creates new quiz inspired by Disney Pixar animation Brave

Historic Scotland has released a new history quiz for families, based on the Disney Pixar animation Brave.

Historic Scotland has announced the release of a new history quiz for families, based on the Disney Pixar animation Brave. The quiz includes fascinating and unusual facts about various historic sites across Scotland, including Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Urquhart Castle, the Callanais Standing Stones, Blackhouse Arnol and Dun Carloway. The quiz will be available at each of these sites from 3 August 2012, to coincide with the release of Brave.

Laura Cheyne, Marketing Manager at Historic Scotland said: 'If you've seen Brave, bring the children and explore one of the real castles
which inspired the film. Come along on a fun, fact-filled mission around the castle by taking part in our quiz inspired by the themes in Brave and seek the answers to lots of interesting questions.

'Find out what was fired from Urquhart's towers before the invention of gunpowder, which red haired queen, who practised archery not far from Edinburgh castle, gave birth to her only son in the Royal Palace, what people once believed the stones at Calanais symbolised and which
remarkable ball was found at Stirling Palace.'

The Brave quiz can also be downloaded from the Historic Scotland website.
