1,200-Years-Old Shoes Found in Esfahan

 

News Category: Post-Sasanian

 28 September 2004

 

 

In the first round of excavations in Isfahan–s Shahdej Fort located beside the architectural remnants from the Post-Sasanid era, archeologists have come across two children–s leather shoes which are believed to date back to 1,200 years ago.


According to Cultural Heritage News agency, a group of experts on archeology and maintenance works began their research a month ago to identify the architectural remnants and determine the antiquity of Shahdej Fort, the sole ancient fort in Isfahan.


Director of the excavation team, Fariba Saeedi, said, —During the excavations in the southern flank of the fort, we came across to two children–s shoes belonging to the age groups 3-4 and 5-6.


Due to the depth and dryness of the place they were recovered, they remained undamaged, she said, adding that the shoes, which are pale brown, have lost their original shape but their soles, upper parts and even the strings on them have endured.


A group of experts intend to restore the shoes to their original form, she noted.
