Summary
"Based on the bestselling series of books for kids (and for adults, but they just won't admit it), Horrible Histories is an anarchic, surprising and unconventional take on history's most gruesome and funny moments. Foul facts, rotten rulers, beastly battles and evil inventions feature in horribly hilarious sketches, songs, cartoons and quizzes - all linked by the show's host, a talking rat! From woeful World Wars, miserable Middle Ages and savage StoneAge to cut-throat Celts, groovy Greeks, rotten Romans, vicious Vikings and awful Egyptians, history has never been so horrible! Irreverent in tone and approach, these are the stories from history that your teacher wouldn't tell you about; the gory, smelly bits that they wouldn't approve of. Get ready for the funniest, fastest, nastiest and daftest ride through history you're very likely to see"--Container
