Ragtag’s prompt for today is ‘Chamber‘, so I went for the first thing that sprang to my mind! Chamber pots have been used by humankind for thousands of years, one of the earliest known examples of a chamber pot was discovered by archaeologists in Egypt dating from the 1300s B.C.
The chamber pot, basically a portable toilet, is not used that much these days. They came in a variety of different styles, some like a stool with a hinged lid, others like a pot or dish. Although styles varied, the function was always the same.
