fascinating workshop, we look at people's health
and personal hygiene - or lack of it! Did
people really bother to keep clean back then?
Did they ever have a bath? How would you brush your
teeth without toothpaste, or a brush? What do you do when food falls on
the floor? How do you get rid of fleas? Where do you go to the toilet
and what do you wipe with?
Beard combs and
hair dye, bathrooms, washing every Saturday, spit bowls and fossilised
York Coprolite - fossilised Viking Poo! Find out what it contains,
if you dare....
