La storia con tutte le sue schifezze. Questo cinico libro vi rivela tutta l'agghiacciante verità sulla selvaggia razza di guerrieri che non ebbe paura di affrontare i rivoltanti romani e che coltivò l'atroce abitudine di collezionare teste umane. Volete sapere: perché i gradassi guerrieri combattevano senza vestiti? come si conserva il cervello di un nemico? perché i cinici celti ridevano ai funerali? Leggete le sanguinolente storie di santi sofferenti, imparate i grotteschi giochi dei bambini celti e non perdete un particolare sui cinici druidi, sui loro sacrifici e i loro terrificanti processi. La storia non è mai stata così brutta! Età di lettura: da 10 anni.

The Cut-Throat Celts is a non-fictional book about Celtic life, religion, and war. It tells us about everything from Druids to Rome's invasions. It is very fun to read, but the author, Terry Deary makes the people in it look less realistic, unlike a history book. However, in some ways, The Cut-Thr
Never in my life did I imagine history could be so much fun! I loved how Terry talked about the Celts but still kept the book easy, understandable, and most importantly fun.

The cut-throat Celts in the horrible history collection is one of my favourite books in the series. A great access point for anyone who loves or even hates history, the vivid descriptions of the sights, smells and even the tastes draws a young reader in.

This is a gruesome and gory account of the Celtic clans that dominated much of Europe before the rise of the Roman Empire. It is suitable for children from the ages of 9-12. Within the first few lines, I was hooked and wanted to read to the end. I found it really witty but also very factual. A great Leggi tutto
As a child history was one of my favourite school subjects thus making Horrible Histories the perfect books for me. Nowadays children have the television series yet I belong to the older group that had the books. Personally, I believe any child who has an interest in history should give these books a Leggi tutto
