A 2,000-year-old dildo has been found by historians. The bronze artifact is a pendant of a penis with testicles and is believed to be named Horncastl. The historic sex toy was handed into historian Adam Daubey, who works for Lincolnshire County Council. The device is just an inch long and according to Adam, who has been studying the piece, it dates back to the Roman era and would have been worn around the neck. He told the Metro newspaper: "It's quite distinctive. It's about an inch long and would have been worn around the neck. They were really, really popular with the Roman army. It's a really nice object, really interesting. We've only got a handful in Lincolnshire." And he also said it also have been worn as a sign of fertility and would often been seen at burials of children. He added: "There were possibly other reasons for people to wear a phallus pendant. There's a possibility it was a fertility symbol. And you would also find them fairly frequently in infant burials. The thought was it would protect the child in the afterlife."

A bride-to-be lost a stone in weight by consuming junk food. Emma managed to fight the flab and fit into her size eight wedding dress by scoffing unhealthy sweet treats and by competing in hardcore eating competitions. She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've done at least eight eating challenges in the two months leading up to my wedding. I did an amazing giant chocolate brownie challenge and a popcorn cookie burger in less than 10 minutes. I also completed an Empire State tower burger challenge. "But the chefs gave me two instead of one - one was just too easy! I haven't put on any weight. In fact I've actually lost weight."

In a Facebook post homeowner, Jesse wrote: "Sometime between midnight and 1.30am, our puppy Evie pooped on our rug in the living room. This is the only time she's done this, so it's probably just because we forgot to let her out before we went to bed that night. Now, if you have a detective's mind, you may be wondering how we know the poop occurred between midnight and 1.30pm, we were asleep so how do I know that time frame?
