Time for some comedy.
Horrible Histories is a multimedia franchise from the United Kingdom. It started in 1993 as a series of books aimed at children, telling history like it really was, including all of the unpleasant details, with a large dose of humour. Since then the series has broken out into magazines, TV shows, live shows, audio recordings, games and toys. It has had great success by teaching children history in a way that they find interesting.
Literally: The Viking Song is from the 1st episode of the second series of the TV series. It tells the story of the Viking invasion of Britain, focussing on the more violent aspects, not only are the lyrics of the song meant to be taken literally but so are the ‘axes‘ that they play.
