Horrible Histories: Vile Victorians (Classic Edition)

Queen Victoria was the ultimate Victorian, and she was not amused. Luckily you’ll be splitting your sides as you discover how disgusting the Victorians really were. They may have looked all prim and proper, but they were a jolly naughty bunch. From public toilets to smelly slums, gruesome glass eyes and creepy corpse-snatchers, take a closer look at this putrid period. You’ll even discover the vile names Victorian kids were called and taste some rotten Victorian recipes!
