Old Sarum

Today we went to old sarum. It is near Salisbury. It has been there for 5000 years. THere has been vikings and Romans and Saxons and Normans there.

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

Can you guess what it is?

It's a toilet/sewer. Well what was left of it. When the castle was here, there would have been a toilet over the top of two pits.

Every day the servants would go in after the king and go on a rope and go down in the big hole and they'd clean all the poo out. That wouldn't be a nice job to do. 

I wouldn't like that job that wouldn't be nice.
