The biggest poo in history is 20cm long and belongs to a 9th Century Viking

You might think you’ve done the biggest poo in history, but we’re afraid there’s bigger out there according to scientists.

Namely this historic specimen housed in a British museum that measures 20cm long and 5 cm wide (yikes!).

And, according to poo scientists – that’s a thing, OK – they can tell it was from a 9th century Viking who ate a lot of meat. And – if you’re of a sensitive disposition, look away now – he was apparently riddled with worms. As the poo contained hundreds of parasitic eggs.

The biggest recognised poo in the world is now housed in a British museum and commonly referred to as the Lloyds Bank poo as it was dug up on a site that would soon become a Lloyds Bank.

Thankfully, however, they were able to rescue the turd before it was lost forever.

The poo has been called the ‘the most exciting piece of excrement I’ve ever seen. In its own way, it’s as irreplaceable as the Crown Jewels’ by Dr Andrew Jones.

He’s clearly never seen his first child push one out.
