Archaeologists Discover Viking Toilet in Denmark

Archaeologists from the Museum Southeast Denmark were conducting a study for pit houses, when they found a hole feature that they have identified as a toilet, possibly the oldest ever found in Denmark and bringing new revelations into the toilet habits of Vikings living in the countryside on the Peninsula.

There is a rather frightening ghost story set in a Viking toilet, at first comical then less so. It concerns one of the men (dead) of Olaf Tryggvason and the last fight of the Long Serpent.
