Castle's Number 2 Throne

Have you ever wondered what a medieval castle toilet was like?

Many medieval castle's toilets were in rooms that jutted out of the castle walls, these rooms were called "Garderobes". There was a hole in the bottom which would allow the waste to fall straight into the moat or a pit that was dug to contain all the poos and wees (This pit was called a "cesspit").
