A 300 year old lump of poo has been found in Denmark.

The lump of faeces had been stored in the back of a Danish museum and has been traced back to a bishop who lived in the city of Aalborg at the end of the 17th Century.

Researchers discovered the lump in a broken bottle. Analysis revealed remnants of an exotic diet of fig, grapes, pepper and buckwheat.

The faeces were found when the old bishop’s manor was excavated in 1937. The remains were then put into a bottle where they were recently found again.

Quite apart from the faeces, the archaeologists also uncovered porcelain tableware from the Dutch city of Delft, including a jar, a bowl and a glass flask.
