Ancient Pompeians Could Go Upstairs to Pee

4 posts in this topic

The residents of the ancient city of Pompeii weren't limited to street-level plumbing, a new study finds. In fact, many in the city may have headed upstairs when nature called.

Most second floors in the Roman city are gone, claimed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii in A.D. 79. But vertical pipes leading to lost second stories strongly suggest that there were once toilets up there, according to a new analysis by A. Kate Trusler, a doctoral candidate in anthropology at the University of Missouri.

The Romans mastered the pouring of concrete UNDERWATER. Their civilization was built on engineering we still marvel at...awesome! Too bad they were such a bloodthirsty lot.

You need to be a blood thirsty lot to thrive in those days (and these days too, to an extent). :o
