Toilet 'simple' history

Do you heard stories about the toilet being invented by man named Crapper. Yeah, me too. Had we been manipulated in by a school's history education?Do you think Thomas Crapper is the toilet inventor? Read my blog now...I search both at yahoo and google and I learned that since 2500 B.C, seated toilets have been used with drainage systems.

Eighteenth century was a century of toilets.However, it seems the idea of toilets went down the drain until the mid-1700s. Of course, the water closet had been invented in 1596 by John Harrington. The first valve-type flush toilet was introduced in 1738 by a man named J.F. Brondel. Thankfully, most of my facts info are fully credited in Sulabh's toilet history.
