We live in our houses, cook in our kitchens, relax in our living rooms. But how did people live before the invention of the bathroom? What was the bedroom like in ancient times?

Did our ancestors use wallpaper? How was prehistoric laundry done, and when did people first cook on a real stove? Inquisitive readers large and small will find reliable answers to these questions and many more in this very book, so pulling back the curtain on the history of the ordinary house and the things in it.
