Copy of a latrine seat, Egypt, 1929-1946

The original latrine seat was excavated at Tell-el-Armana in Egypt, a settlement built by King Akhenaton sometime around 1375 BCE. Tell-el-Armana was unique. For those who could afford it, there were bathroom facilities – including a simple shower – and toilets where the sewerage was taken away by a central underground system. The city was abandoned in 1360 BCE, shortly after Akhenaton’s death. The original was excavated by the Egyptian Exploration Society during 1929-1931 and is now at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
