When I came across this article (about ancient poop barrels AKA "renaissance poo"), I just knew that permies would be interested!  Am I right?  https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/what-poop-tells-us-about-renaissance-diets

I thought it was interesting how little the contents had disintegrated, after more than half a millennium.  Maybe similar to how the bog/peat people were preserved?
