Metro Rod Bedford bring you ‘The Origin of the Toilet’…


You may call it the toilet, the loo, the privy, the potty, the can or even the bathroom, but whatever you call it, this every day object has its roots in Bronze Age Pakistan.

On Saturday, Radio 4’s ‘The Origin of Stuff’, was focussed on the every day object none of us in the UK can live without, the beloved toilet.
