A brief history of toilets
On sunny days, citizens of ancient Rome could be found exchanging news and gossip while attending to more urgent business at the public latrines. Today, most cultures consider trips to the restroom to be a more private occasion. But even when going alone, our shared sewage infrastructure is one of the most pivotal inventions in human history. Francis de los Reyes shares the history of the toilet. [Directed by Igor Coric, Artrake Studio, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Nikola Radivojevic].
