Medieval Cleanliness

How clean were Medieval people?
Simple History | 23.IV.2018

Comment on their final word on cesspits:

Cess pits cleaned out actually gave farmers vert desireable fertiliser.

Boulogne-Billancourt, outside Paris, had this system to when Napoleonic Wars depleted the numbers of surrounding vineyard owners, leading to a need for other solutions.

Obviously, if farmers came once evert two weeks or so, the task was not too unthankful.
