About this item

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 June 29th– July 1st, 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 fifteen chapters covering a wide range of aspects associated with feet and footwear in classical antiquity. Contributions are grouped under four headings: ‘Envisaging Footwear’, ‘Following Footprints’, ‘One from a Pair’ and ‘Between Representation and Reality’, reflecting the broad range and interdisciplinary nature of the approaches undertaken.
