Synopsis

History's Most Horrible Jobs by Robyn Hardyman, Louise Spilsbury

History's Most Horrible Jobs looks at horrible jobs that people had to undertake in history. Taking one historical period in detail, each book explains what each horrible job involved, why it was carried out, the equipment used to perform each function and the terrible pitfalls of the role. Discover how people lived and why they needed others to carry out each particular horrible job, from Henry VIII's toilet assistant or the disgusting Colonial wigmaker, to a chimney sweep during the Industrial Revolution. With fun graphics, colourful illustrations and photographs and a lively text, this is a fascinating look at what our poor ancestors might have had to do for a living!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
