Sorting the facts from the historical fiction, Bad History exposes the falsehoods that have wrongly influenced our understanding of world history. Much of what we know about historical events is based on generally accepted ‘facts’: St Patrick was Irish; Roman gladiators would fight to the death; the Wild West was full of danger… However, history is, in fact, full of myths and misunderstandings that have been repeated so much over the years that we don’t give them a second thought. Each entry in this informative book will discuss the case for and against these commonly accepted truths, and corrects what you thought you knew about history. Bad History provides a rigorously researched and entertaining read, perfect for any history enthusiast who wants to get their facts straight.
