Quarry Dig Reveals Iron Age Shoe

The oldest Iron Age shoe ever discovered in the United Kingdom has been unearthed at a quarry near Wellington, England. The 2,000-year-old shoe has still visible lace holes.

The leather shoe was discovered in a hollowed tree trunk and is just one of the relics discovered by archaeologists who were working on a nearby Bronze Age site. From its size, experts believe that the show belonged to a male.
