- A History of Human Hygiene
- By: Elizabeth Poynter
- Narrated by: Elizabeth Poynter
- Length: 4 hrs and 30 mins
When you watch those stunning TV period dramas, do you ever wonder about the bits they don't show - where did the hero go for a "comfort break"? How did the beautiful heroine clean her pearly-white teeth? How often did they take a bath, and what did they use for soap? This book tries to answer these questions and many more. While not written primarily for laughs, it takes a light-hearted look at aspects of human hygiene down the ages, and in a range of cultures across the world.
