How did humans used to wipe their bottoms? And how did they wake up in the morning before alarm clocks?

Historian, Greg Jenner has the answer to all these questions in his book  A Million Years in a Day: A Curious History of Everyday Life, From Stone Age To Phone Age.

He reveals how our ancestors coped with the rituals of everyday life that we still follow today and how our lives compare to theirs.
