Drawing students in by the sometimes distasteful details—the fun "gross out" factor—of history, these entertaining and informative books offer fresh perspectives on the lives, customs, and cultural practices of past civilizations.
Some of the stomach-churning and gruesome highlights of the books: the Romans used urine as a detergent, the Greeks partook in such culinary delights as goat lung and brain omelets, and doctors in medieval Europe used remedies like ground-up worms, bloodletting through leeches, and spreading animal dung on wounds. Though the focus is on the weird and nauseating, students come away with an appreciation of the significant contributions of each culture.
