18th Century Sex Toy Found in Gdansk Latrine

Eight-inch, 250-year-old sex toy ()
A 250-year-old sex toy has been found by archaeologists during a dig of an ancient toilet in Poland.
The eight-inch leather dildo with a wooden head was discovered during an excavation at an old school of swordsmanship in the coastal city of Gdansk. A spokesman for the Regional Office for the Protection of Monuments in Gdansk, said: 'It was found in the latrine and dates back to the second half of the 18th century. 'It is quite thick and rather large, made of leather and filled with bristles, and has a wooden tip that has preserved in excellent condition. It was probably dropped by someone in the toilet 'Whether that was by accident or on purpose is anyone's guess though.' Archaeologists at the site earlier discovered old swords leading them to suspect that the place was once a school of swordsmanship. The artifact has now been taken away for preservation work.
