Based on the best-selling books for kids (and for adults, but they just won't admit it), Horrible Histories is an energetic, surprising and unconventional take on history's most gruesome, unpleasant yet funniest moments. From the woeful World Wars, the miserable Middle Ages and the savage Stone Age to cut-throat Celts, groovy Greeks, rotten Romans, vile Vikings and awful Egyptians, history has never been so naughty. These are the stories from history that your mischievous uncle told you about; the gory, smelly bits that your teacher wouldn't approve of. Get ready for the funniest, fastest, nastiest and daftest ride through history you're ever likely to see.
