A dismembered doll tea party.
These are dolls found through excavations of old privies…really! Now housed in the City Museum, St. Louis MO, as an exhibit. What can we learn about a community by its public waste receptacles? It turns out quite a lot! From what types of commodities were consumed (and discarded), to things like what diseases were rampant at what time (based upon findings of medicine bottles, old syringes, and other medical devices).
