Want to know:
* why weird Celt warriors fought with no clothes on?
* how to preserve your enemy's brain?
* why the Celts laughed at funerals?
Read on for some gory stories about suffering saints, gruesome games for Celtic kids, and find out about the dreadful Druids, their strange sacrifices and terrible trials.
History has never been so horrible!'
A witty, colourful cover opens to 127 pages, split over chapters:
2. Getting to know the cut-throat Celts
3. Lousy legends
4. Batty beliefs
5. Weird war
6. Woe for women
7. Crazy Celt life
8. Crime and punishment
9. Weird words
with an introduction and an epilogue.
Written with the typical Deary humour and illustrations from Martin Brown throughout.
The result is humorous, interesting and factually correct. The cartoons by illustrator Martin Brown wonderfully complement the text. I showed my book to a few friends at work, and had a very difficult time getting it back! I hope they start publishing more of these delightfully horrible histories in the United States soon.
Considering Deary had the unenviable task of teaching me about Celts when I'd rather be learning about Thor and Valkyries, he pulled a blinder - I'm pretty sure I could read a Horrible Histories book about the history of agriculture and find it fascinating if Deary wrote it. The Cut-Throat Celts is yet another expertly crafted example of children's non-fiction, still recommended today.
