HORRIBLE HISTORIES - THE MEASLY MIDDLE AGES BBC RADIO COLLECTION Adapted by Terry Deary and Martin Brown
Terry Deary and Martin Brown's brilliant books about the nastiest periods in history have now – with the help of some astounding actors – been transformed into a series of audio extravagant. Featuring, new, extra material not found anywhere in the books, these sound spectaculars are just as thrilling and spilling, funny and fast as their printed counterparts. Horrible Histories are guaranteed to bring you history with the nasty bits left in!
No other period in history (apart from most of the others) was as nasty as the Middle Ages. The peasants were revolting, the food was disgusting, and death lurked round every corner. The Knights might have been bold, but a lot of the women were bolder – take Joan of Arc, who had to dress up as a man to be taken seriously! Then there was the nerdy knight who pretended he was a woman in order to get his girl (but the beard was a bit of a giveaway). Learn the filth, fear and torture your teacher never taught yet!
