Great quiz -- but one suggestion: The reference to "that country" in the question about the Maji Maji Rebellion doesn't make sense. It seems to refer to the preceding question, but the preceding question is about Freddy Mercury. Should the question be moved so that it follows the one about colonization between 1885 and 1918?
