Archaeologists Find Ancient Toilet In Israel

It turns out, toilets are not a modern invention. Archaeologists have uncovered a rare, private toilet in Jerusalem. The Israel Antiquities Authority says the 27-hundred-year-old toilet cubicle dates back to the First Temple. Officials say only a few toilets have ever been uncovered, since only the rich could afford them.

The potty was pretty impressive. It’s a carved stone toilet with a hole in the center and a deep septic tank below.
