A humorous visual history of toilets from professors Katie Nelson and Olivia Meikle

You sit on it every day, but how much do you really know about your toilet? 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. Prepare to be revolted by a fossilized Viking turd discovered by archaeologists, the Mongol catapult used to fling smelly poop at their enemies, and the reason ancient Romans used pee to wash their clothes!

Filled with poop 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. It’s a history book like no other!
