First city in the world

This is a quiz to accompany the online tutor's guide to "the earliest ancient city of the Americas" and Peru's ancient cultures. Google (academia wikia caral) for more information.

However the quiz itself is designed to stand alone and develop an understanding of the key concepts: particularly the transition from simple (sometimes called primitive)societies to more complex and partly urbanised cultures.
