Leeks. Saints. Daffodils. Choirs. Harps. At first glance, the history of Wales might seem pretty tame. But in this Horrible History, you'll get the real lowdown - with savage druids, deadly dragons and heaps of nasty bits! This is the history of Wales as you've never heard it before: a terrible tale of Norman invaders, Viking sea-raiders, cruel Celts, miserable miners and battling bards. Find out why druids split humans in half, how the Normans outwitted the Welsh with a lump of ham - and how an angry army of Welsh mums fought off the French once and for all! It's all horribly exciting!
