The Stone Age
was a time when headaches were cured by drilling holes in your skull, and when fast food meant tearing open the stomach of an animal and pinching that animal's last meal - straight from its guts! But don't entertain the idea that these primitive people were savages. Some of them loved their grannies so much they let them stay with the family - even after they were dead. And how do we know that the stone-agers ate for tea? Easy! They left us piles of poo, for scientists to examine...

Terry Deary's Horrible Histories series is one that will appeal to parents, as well as children. The idea is simple: make learning fun. And it works. This volume looks at the Stone Age way of life, as well as examining the many theories of how Stonehenge was created (wizards, giants and aliens have all been given credit in one crazy theory or another).

Adapted from Deary's series of books, this release plays like a comedy sketch show - but one with a mission to educate as well as entertain. It also contains exclusive content that was not originally available in the book.

This series stars Toby Longworth, who Judge Dredd fans will know as the voice of the chief lawman himself in Big Finish's audio series. Also of not is the fact that Dirk Maggs directs this series.

This episode, as others, concludes on a positive note by showing that maybe, just maybe, the Stone Age was not as savage as we may have at first thought.

Certainly worth buying if you want to help educate a curious young mind - or learn something about history yourself.
