2,700-year-old luxury toilet discovered in Jerusalem
A 2,700-year-old luxury toilet has been discovered during excavations at the remains of an ancient royal palace in Israel.
A statement from Israel’s Antiquities Authority (IAA) said a 7th-century BC luxury toilet is discovered during excavations at the remains of a royal palace in the capital, Jerusalem.
According to the IAA, the discovered toilet was used until the time of Hazrat Yaqub (A.S) son.
The Israeli authority also said that a comfortable seating area with a hole was made in the middle of the rectangular toilet, which was expertly carved out of stone, along with a deep tank for collecting human waste.
The IAA director said such toilets have been rarely discovered because they were used only by rich people.
Earlier in January, a group of scientists have discovered 98 million years old fossils in Argentina, which they believe is of the largest dinosaur ever found.
According the National University of La Matanza’s CTYS scientific agency, the fossilized bones could belong to Titanosaurs, a sauropod family of dinosaurs including some of the largest terrestrial animals to ever walk on Earth.
The Sauropods tended to have long neck, long tail and have been considered to be the largest animal on the earth. They are herbivorous.

Moreover, Such dinosaurs were lean towards eating less meat. They managed to grow to the full size. As per the researchers, their fossils have been found in all continents except Antarctica. They suggest that more digging in the area will likely reveal more fossils.
However, Alejandro Otero of Argentina’s Museo de La Plata has been working on assembling together a likeness of the new dinosaur from the other two-dozen vertebrae and bits of pelvic bone discovered in 2012.
