Heffers bookshop is delighted to announce that the hosts of hit TV quiz show Pointless are coming to Cambridge for a romp through the pages of their brand new book, A Pointless History of the World. Come along for what promises to be an entertaining and insightful evening with Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman - and be among the first people to get their hands on a signed copy of A Pointless History of the World!

A Pointless History of the World is a complete[1] and meticulously researched[2] series of essays on our rich and glorious past. Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, two of the world's foremost experts on Things Before Their Time[3] take you on a step-by-step journey through history. From the Big Bang to the Fall of the Roman Empire, from the Ice Age to the Evolution of Language, from Henry VIII to Last of the Summer Wine: all of civilisation is here. A publishing first, this thoroughly comprehensive and highly ambitious quest through Time and Space is interspersed with questions for all the family from TV's most popular tea-time quiz show, Pointless. This is Alexander and Richard's biggest book yet. The book no historian can afford to be without[4], it comes complete with introduction and footnotes[5]. [1] Highly selective [2] Largely cobbled together from what we can remember from school [3] That's not even a thing [4] Under no circumstances to be used for reference [5] Um...
