Summary
  • "Until recently, very little was known in detail about medieval footwear. Stylised pictures on manuscripts or funerary monuments, the occasional remark by a contemporary writer - these were all that historians had to go on. Leather perishes after prolonged exposure to the atmosphere, and so very few shoes survived." "Since the 1970s and 1980s, more than two thousand shoes - many of them complete and in near-perfect condition - have been found preserved in waterlogged conditions along the north bank of the river Thames. These discoveries, all in well-dated archaeological contexts, have revolutionised the understanding of costume history, making it possible to chart precisely the progress of shoe fashion between the 12th and 15th centuries."
  • "The scholarly discoveries packed into these pages will be invaluable to replica-makers, theatrical costumiers and archaeologists, and provide fascinating historical detail for students and general readers."--Jacket
