Book of Dirt by Piotr Socha and Monika Utnik-Strugala
Millions of people across Earth start their day the same way: we get out of bed, go to the loo and wash ourselves. But this wasn’t always so - at the time the Black Death struck Europe, many people believed that water spread disease. Dive deep into the history and science of dirt: discover how people around the world (and even in space) keep themselves and their surroundings filth-free, how our ideas of what’s clean and what isn’t have changed over time, and why a little dirt can sometimes be a good thing.
