“Originators of the entire foot-encasing shoe”

Archaeological excavations in a 2,000 Roman well yielded a very well preserved shoe. The well was situated in a village associated with The Saalburg, a Roman fort in what is now Germany. The fort initially sat on the boundary between the Roman empire and the German provinces to the north.
