The Cut-throat Celts, Terry Deary

Cut-throat Celts (Horrible Histories) - Terry Deary

Thanks to BrokenTune for giving me this book!

 

A deliberately silly book for kids about everybody's favourite Iron Age culture (everybody who likes washing with soap, anyway - you're welcome). Of course it's superficial in adult terms but it does go a little into how much of what is "known" was written by the enemies of the Celts, particularly the Romans and is therefore possibly unreliable except when backed by other evidence.

 

Fun!
