Synopsis

Poo! A History of the World from the Bottom Up by Sarah Albee

Throughout history, civilisation has been shaped not only by human design, but by human poo, or rather, by how humans decided to get rid of it! From finding out how many toilets you can expect to find in the average Egyptian pyramid, to how moats around medieval castles were used as more than just a defence against enemies, Poo is a fascinating exploration of how human waste and it's disposal has changed the world.

Reviews
