Horrible Histories Special: Dark Knights and Dingy Castles (Classic Edition)

Step back into an era of cruel crusaders and dreadful dungeons in this horrible history book! Terry Deary takes you charging back to the days of chivalry, when knights clanked about in shining armour waving weird weapons – and pitiful peasants cleaned up the mess afterwards! It’s a gruesome trip that takes in terrific tournaments and savage sieges, before descending into the dark dungeons of creepy castles. History has never been so horrible!
