Welcome reader! This is the history book you've been waiting for! Peer down the pan of the past with us to discover all there is to know about Tudor toilets, medieval manure, dinosaur dung and Ancient Chinese chutes. Poo chutes, that is.

Find out about the earliest WCs, what loos were like in the pyramids, how the Romans gossiped in public loos and what castle moats were really used for. Discover how Henry VIII cleansed the Royal Bum, what part 'gongfermors' played in medieval times and who invented loo paper!

When did we finally upgrade to flushable facilities and sanitary sewers? And why were early Victorian streets piled high with poo?

Dip into these chronicles of the cloakroom to find the answers to all these historical hygiene questions and many more...
