Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans (2019), with Emma Coffey

It’s British edu-tainment at its finest? Opinions, like empires, are divided over this movie, a raunchy comedy adapted from of a popular TV/Youtube series adapted from a popular book series. Joined by a new wonderful guest, Emma Coffey, we get into Boudica’s revolt, representation of historical women in film and Britain’s representation of its own colonial history as mediated through its ancient past. And poop jokes. All in all pretty standard fair. Is this a clever and effective way to teach history or Youtube sketch that overstayed its welcome?
