THE HISTORY OF TOILETS *


This class explores the long and fascinating history of toilets, from ancient Mesopotamia to today. ​We also learn about how even in current times, toilets are not so common as we often think they are, why that is is, and what is being done about it - from Cambodia to San Francisco.
