You are right, Bernie, but Joe and Ken got it spot on. The quiz setters should have posed the answers in Centuries, to keep it in context with the question.

But it didn't state a year, it just asked what century :(

The answers should have read 13c,14c, 15c, or 16c, to be in context with the question.

You did say you were being pedantic today Phil :lol:
But yes you are correct.
BTW did you see the programme on Saturday night? They had the most irritating fella on, he managed to put me on edge :lol:

No, Keith, I only watched that chap until he flunked the next question. And he said that Mary Shelley wrote Dracula. :D
