Description

Not all history is recorded in school textbooks or cast into towering monuments that shape city skylines. Quite often the most intriguing (and most bizarre) bits are forgotten and fall away into obscurity. In this fascinating book, Jem Duducu shines light on the almost forgotten, wonderfully strange, and often hilarious moments of history that would otherwise be lost forever. Forgotten History tells in delightful detail the stories of the hard-to-believe moments, people or inventions from history. Split into four main eras - ancient, medieval, early modern and twentieth century - this light-hearted and easy-to-read fact book is full to bursting with the bits from history that even a history enthusiast may otherwise have never known. Covering a wide variety of topics, from the time a Pope put his dead predecessor on trial all the way up to the awkward moment when the US Air Force accidentally dropped nuclear bombs on Spain, take a journey through time and discover the weird and wonderful history that you didn't learn about in school.
