1,000-year-old poo at museum a popular attraction


People have flocked to see 1,000-year-old human faeces, previously kept hidden in the Gloucester City Museum & Art Gallery.

Discovered by archaeologists in 1991 digging on the site of a public car park, it was found at the bottom of a roadside hole thought to have been dug in Saxon times.

There are now plans to put the object on permanent display in the museum's new galleries due to open in April 2011.

The BBC's Zoe Gough went to see the faeces, get the reaction from children and talk to David Rice, the museum's Archaeology Curator.
