    Except for those few remaining Roman cities that had ancient sewage systems and drainage systems that worked. Rome itself has a sewage system built for them by the Etruscans which still operates, though no-one knows why. There are a few cities in Hungary, Spain, et Cetera that have some operational Roman baths and drainage systems, which are far cleaner, but most European cities in the Middle Ages were cesspools and one walked in filth. Unlike what they show in movies, your average Mediaeval city had human feces in the streets as well as horse manure, people threw full chamber pots out their windows, there were rats running in the streets eating garbage and poop.

    By 1992, every city was covering poo. Sewage systems do work better than the 'bucket and chuck it' method. At least until the sewer monsters attack.

    That might be true.
