Know your H2Eau – French Rivers quiz
How good is your knowledge of the geography of France? Do you know your French Rivers?
Most people have heard of the Loire and possibly the Seine, Dordogne and Rhône. However there are a multitude of other rivers that have shaped the landscape of France. Many have been trade routes and cities have grown up along their banks. Ports grew in the estuaries as France began to export its produce. Other rivers have carved out gorges, laid down flood plains and provided wetlands and marshes for a variety of wildlife.
