Shoes, Slippers, and Sandals. Feet and Footwear in Classical Antiquity, 2018, 338 p. -

This edited volume groups research on the significance of ancient feet and footwear, much of which was presented, discussed and reviewed at the conference: Shoes, Slippers and Sandals: Feet and Footwear in Antiquity, held at Newcastle University and the Great North Museum from 29 June–1 July 2015. Ancient dress and adornment have received significant consideration in recent scholarship, though, strikingly, feet and footwear have featured relatively little in this discussion. This volume aims to rectify this imbalance through its chapters covering a wide range of aspects associated with feet and footwear in classical antiquity. Sommaire : 1.
