Horrible Histories: Cut-Throat Celts (Classic Edition)

The cut-throat Celts may have been a riotous rabble armed with swords and spears, but they knew how to make the Roman army’s blood run cold! Discover the fearsome facts about the wild warriors who fought the Romans naked while collecting human heads! You’ll find out:

  • Why weird Celt warriors fought with no clothes on
  • How to preserve your enemy’s brain
  • How to play gruesome Celtic games
  • What the dreadful Druids did to their strange sacrifices

If that’s not nasty enough for you, you must be a cut-throat Celt yourself!

    Hilarious! This book has a way of explaining history but in a fun way! I would never dread history again! I would recommend from 8+ as it could be quite gory and the title gives a hint!
