The Vikings launch their advert for We Sell Any Monk, Queen Elizabeth I surprises her court with some very odd laws, the sacrifice-obsessed Aztec priests sing their gruesome disco song, and we discover the Roman equivalent of text messaging.

The gruesome gags continue when guests attend a Middle Ages Come Dine With Me, the show tunes into Aztec Gardeners' World and there is a Victorian traffic report.
