Body Waste-related Conference

From Rogue Classicism:

First call for papers

Conference: Roman latrines and cesspit toilets

in the northwestern provinces.

Contact: Latrine2009 AT gmail.com

The public and private toilets in the Roman cities in the Mediterranean area have been the subject of archaeological research for many years. We know a great deal about the way these toilets were constructed and how they functioned, but also about all kind of related things such as the social aspect of visiting a toilet and rituals connected to it, or practical aspects such as the use of urine in the tanning of leather.

    This reminds me of a joke – Artscroll was going to put out an Asher Yatzar book – but they couldn’t find a picture of an 11th centurty toilet for the cover.
