Bowerhill Christmas Quiz '07

"How Many Years Between" ... Christmas quiz 2007. Prepared for the Bowerhill Villager team, but anyone else is welcome to play!

You are given two events in history in each questions and you are asked to work our how many years passed between them. For example, if you were asked for the number of years between the death of Queen Victoria (which was 1901) and the coming to the throne of Elizabeth II (1953) the answer would be 52 years.
