Oldest Shoe Unearthed!

Dear Commons Community,

A group of archaeologists have discovered what they believe is the world’s oldest known leather shoe.   The shoe was found in a cave in Armenia.  It is believed to be about 5,500 years old which puts it in the Copper Age, when humans are believed to have invented the wheel, domesticated horses and other modern innovations.    It was probably worn by a woman with a size 7 foot.   A hearty thank you  to the dedicated researchers who are tracing back who we were and how we lived in the distant past.
