Truth or Busted's Victorians title explores popular myths about the Victoria era, its people and events in a tongue-in-cheek, humorous way that kids will find unputdownable.
Alongside features such as 'Flabbergastation!' in which we discover the oddest aspects of Victorian life, Truth or Busted statements such as 'Queen Victoria was not amused' or 'George Stephenson was a reckless driver' are explored. We look at where the idea came from, whether it has any basis in truth, or whether it can be consigned to folklore. Finally, each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation.
A must for anyone studying the Victorians at key stage 2 or key stage 3.
