8th-century royal flush toilet found in South Korea

An 8th-century toilet has been found in a palace dating to the Unified Silla Dynasty in eastern South Korea.

Remains of what appears to be a flush toilet made during the Unified Silla Dynasty in the eighth century have been discovered in a secondary palace in Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province.

The Gyeongju National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage said Tuesday that excavation work at a site northeast of the Dong Palace in Gyeongju uncovered a stone flush toilet and draining system inside a stone structure.

It marked the first time for a bathroom structure, toilet and draining system to all be found at an ancient site in South Korea.
