Fascinating, bizarre and hilarious facts about the most universal of experiences of life – birth, death and matrimony …

All the female eggs needed to produce the next generation of the human race could be contained in the shell of one chicken’s egg … Winston Churchill was born in a ladies’ cloakroom … Attila the Hun drank himself to death on his wedding night … in Tanzanian weddings the bride and groom sit on the lap of an old woman … Indian Chief Blackbird was buried sitting on his horse …

From Roman births to Bedouin wedding feasts, from the touching tale of the marriage of two white rhinos to the gruesome stories of the final resting places of Oliver Cromwell’s head and Gallileo’s fingers, Hatches, Matches and Dispatches reveals the true facts of life!
