Simon Tierney explores the hidden histories of ordinary things, from the toaster to the tooth brush and the matchstick to the mousetrap.

Simon Tierney explores the hidden histories of ordinary things, from the toaster to the tooth brush and the matchstick to the mousetrap. Based on the popular weekly series on Moncrieff on Newstalk radio, Stuff that Changed the World offers an unusual and often amusing look at the things around us we take for granted.

Discover why men wore high heels before women ever did, how Queen Elizabeth I owned the world’s first flushing toilet. Why is mayonnaise named after a famous battle and did early staplers really require a mallet to operate?

The book takes readers on a journey through a kaleidoscope of social history to find the extraordinary stories in the most ordinary of things.
