[series copy] Smelly Old History is a unique new series that brings history to your nose through scratch-and-sniff panels. Informative and amusing text, lavish and hilarious artwork, poems, and puzzles combine with these pungent panels to give children a true "sense of the past." With these often funny tours back in time, young readers will learn that smells have played a powerful role in our history.

When the Romans arrived in Britain they soon showed the rampaging Celts the way to perfumed perfection. Poor old Celts--with their oils, and baths, and drains--those Romans really got up their noses. Sample the splendors of the public baths and a fabulous feast, or suffer with the soldiers in the frozen latrines on Hadrian's Wall in northern England. You won't forget those Roman Aromas in a hurry.
