Old Sarum - The Kings toilet

Today at old Sarum we spotted the weirdest and of course at the time - the stinkiest thing.

Can you guess what it is?

These are toilets and for only the royal behinds only.

When the castle was complete, there would have been a floor above this and toilet seats there.

They worked like pits of rubbish in the medieval age. The king poos or wees in the loo and then it fills up and when he's away, they clean it up. What a gross job it would be. Can you do that every day all day every year?
