It all began in 2000, when we bought the devastated Třebotov fortress. During its reconstruction, a stone formation emerging from an outer perimeter wall was discovered. It was a medieval room called a privete (from the Latin locus privatus). On the same wall, there was a baroque extension, in which a dry toilet with a pit was placed.
These two architectural details related to a common human need made us so interested that we chose to collect objects made for this purpose in different historical periods and to map out their history and development.
