Archaeological Footwear

Development of shoe patterns and styles from Prehistory till the 1600's

Author  Marquita Volken

This comprehensive volume delves deep into the cutting patterns, shoe style and chronology revealed by the author’s interpretation of archaeological and other discoveries of recovered remains of shoes and shoemaking tools.  Much light has been shed on the materials, design and construction of shoes through the ages in Europe. This has allowed the author to propose a chronological order for the technical, stylistic and typological complexity encountered among recovered archaeological footwear.
