Book Description

July 6 2009 Horrible Histories
Readers can learn what life was really like in the Measly Middle Ages - in days of old when knights were bold, women wore tall pointy hats, and the peasants truly were revolting. In Vicious Vikings, readers get all the frightening facts about these vile invaders and their savage Saxon enemies, from cruel kings and vengeful Viking warriors to their suffering slaves. With curious quizzes, rotten recipes, gruesome games and terrible tests...History has never been so horrible!

4.0 out of 5 stars What fun. Light and Easy History Fun Sept. 23 2010
By apoem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This whole series "Horrible Histories" are lots of fun. There are cute little drawings and cartoons scattered through out the books. This one in specific is one of our favorites. It is a light hearted look at vikings and the middle ages.

It has some of the gross, nasty, not so whitewashed things that vikings did that you don't always get to read about in the normal history books. Even with that though it is not gory or gross. Similarly the middle ages, it has some of the interesting, not so clean things that were done during the middle ages.

This is a fun book with cute drawings, interesting information and lots of neat facts. It is not an in depth history book. It is also not something a homeschooler could use as a history curriculum. However, it is a nice break, a nice addition to any history curriculum you might have on hand.

Well worth the money. Enjoy.

My 11-year-old brother reads this all the time - I think he's memorized it! I have heard more odd facts about the Middle Ages now than I did when I was studying it!

By just me - Published on Amazon.com

We love the Horrible Histories series. Although I couldn't use these as a stand alone history program, they give a light break in the normal historical reading. Their humor is just right for a Middle or even High School student to supplement their "serious" history reading.

Our boys enjoy this series. They've read the Rotten Romans and the Groovy Greeks and loved them. It's an interesting way to study history.
