Revolutionary Paris -A very stinky story

I did not know how bad the smell of Parisian Street was back in the Eighteen Century. Look (if you are not eating at the moment) at this wonderful documentary. (I have to go... I feel like throwing up)

Dan Snow immerses himself into the rotten world of revolutionary Paris by visiting a tannery, also a perfumer to recreate the stench of the 18th century city and he gets a rare glimpse into the private rooms of the infamous Queen Marie Antoinette at the palace of Versailles. ©BBC
