Your Ancestors Didn’t Sleep Like You ... Know any other "interesting" trivia about how our ancestors lived?

Though many would say that summer is over now that we are past Labor Day, with 90 degree temperatures here in North Carolina, it sure still seems like summer.

That said, I think a Friday is a great day to post some “trivia!”

I came across this article, posted by a friend on Facebook, Your Ancestors Didn’t Sleep Like You (on Slumber Wise).  As always, do check out the comments.  Even the author added an addendum pointing out some tidbits he learned through the comments of others.

I found it a fascinating read and I just had no idea that people didn’t maybe always sleep as I do. 

Along similar lines, are there other bits of “trivia” about how our ancestors “lived” their lives?  Another example of something that most of us take for “granted?”
