From the Back Cover:

The terrible truth about revolting events not so very long ago!

Terry Deary and Martin Brown’s brilliant books about the nastiest periods in history have now—with the help of some astounding actors—been transformed into a series of audio extravaganzas. Featuring new, extra material not found anywhere in the books, these sound spectaculars are just as thrilling and spilling, funny and fast as their printed counterparts. 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!

History has never been so horrible ...

Synopsis:
