Latrinae et Foricae: Toilets in the Roman World

by Barry Hobson: A very interesting and informative book that, to our inexpert eyes, is well thought out and executed. It will be of interest to both students of Roman Archaeology and those looking away from the monumental and heroic and more towards the daily life of the ordinary people.

The author is a Medical Doctor and ….. …… can you resist a book with chapters on, inter alia:

  • Chronology of toilets,
  • Upstairs toilets,
  • Dirt, smell and culture, and
  • Motions Maladies and Medicine

I thought not! The full review is here
