Horrible Histories (TV Tie-in): Smashing Saxons

The horrible book to go with the TV series! The smashing Saxons were a rough tough bunch who liked nothing better than a bloody battle. They had great fun bashing the Brits… until they got nobbled by the Normans. Read on to shudder at the warlike ways of their pillaging people, and to find out…
  • who got cow pats as Christmas presents
  • why wearing a pig on your head was lucky
  • what disgusting diseases the Saxons suffered from
  • how to make a dead Saxon happy

So read all about the savage Saxons. It’s smashing fun!
