5500 year old shoe found in Armenia

I know it’s a bit out of the scope of this blog, but CNN are today reporting on a leather shoe found in a cave in Armenia. It has a single piece upper with back and front seam and is strikingly like some of the shoes reported in Viking-settled areas, particularly Ireland.

The full report and photo is here.
