Horrible Histories are guaranteed to bring you history with the nasty bits left in!
So, if you want to know how some Victorians made a profit from dead bodies, or learn about the tricks the poor kids used to play on the ‘posh people’, and if you’ve ever wanted a gory and gruesome guide to vile Victorian death, this is the cassette for you! It’s packed with sketches, quizzes and revolting recipes which—when mixed with poems, jokes, mini-dramas and real life re-enactments—tell you the kind of foul facts which just aren’t available from a classroom education!
