Atti is a resourceful Roman teenager whose wits more than make up for his lack of physicality, even if he sometimes bends the rules. But when his latest scheme lands him in hot water with Emperor Nero, Atti is horrified to learn of his punishment: he’s forced to join the Roman army and exiled to cold, wet Britain where they’re attempting to quash the rebellion. The natives are revolting, led by formidable warrior Boudicca, and a feisty young Celt is desperate to join her quest despite the protests of her overly-cautious father. Horrible Histories: Rotten Romans is both fun and educational, a laugh-out-loud, lively introduction to ancient history and how it compares to the modern day.
