700 Year Old Community Toilet Found

One of the biggest archeology digs in Denmark has uncovered something archaeologists sort of stumbled on, 700 year old latrines that are in excellent shape. Such good shape the poo still smells as bad as ever.

It appears to be a communal toilet for the town of Odense where a number of barrels of human waste were uncovered. It seems people in Odense in the 1300’s enjoyed raspberries as traces were found in the poo and moss, leather and fabric were used for toilet paper.

It also shows the poo contained intestinal parasites that plagued crusaders in the area in the 1300’s. The 700 year old poo still smells and tours are being held in case people want to take a whiff for themselves.
