You sit on it every day, but how much do you really know about your toilet? Discover the history of pooing and weeing in this frankly disgusting non-fiction book.
Authors Katie Nelson and Olivia Meikle have scoured the toilet bowls and sewers of the world to find out how humans have done their business throughout history. It’s time to get to the bottom of toilets! Prepare to be revolted by:
• A fossilized Viking turd discovered by archaeologists

• The reason ancient Romans used wee to wash their clothes
Filled with poo facts and vomit-inducing stats, you will also learn how diseases like cholera spread through bad sanitation, why some of the earliest toilets had a tendency to explode, and how medieval kings and queens had special helpers to wipe their bums.
