Things ancient people did that seem strange today

Use of animal fertilizer to cure sickness pain

It may seem unpleasant, but the ancient people used animal wastes to treat various diseases. For example, in ancient Greece, women used Crocodile Waste to prevent pregnancy. In ancient Egypt, warriors put animal wounds on their wounds. Sheep excrements were used in Scotland to treat smallpox and fresh pigs were used to treat nasal hemorrhage.
