[ May 10th 2005 ]

British archaeologists have uncovered a 2,000 year old shoe hidden in a hollow tree on a Bronze Age iron-smelting site in Wellington, Southwest England. The tree had been used to construct an ancient waterway at Whiteball Quarry, Associated Press reports.

"As far as we know, this is the oldest shoe ever found in the United Kingdom," said Stephen Reed, who led the team from Exeter Archaeology that made the find. "It is reasonably well-preserved, with stitch and lace holes still visible in the leather." Reed told AP.

The shoe measured 12 inches in length, suggesting the owner was a male. Reed said the find was unusual because garments and apparel normally biodegrade during the passage of time. Researches at Wiltshire Conservation Centre will spend time analysing the shoe in the hope of uncovering more information about ancient clothing and footwear.
