VIRTUAL - Exploring the Technologies and Realities of Roman Toilets: Not a lot to Go on

March 3, 2023 @ 5:00 pm EST

This is an online event.

AIA Society: Baltimore

Lecturer: Ann Olga Koloski-Ostrow

This talk considers the following: What can Roman toilets teach us about daily life in ancient Rome?  What does the archaeology of these structures reveal about Roman hygiene, public sanitation, customs related to purity or cleanliness? In a talk that investigates and illustrates some key examples of public and private Roman toilets from Rome, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Ostia, we take a trip down into the black holes of ancient space for some answers.
