Pointed leather shoe sole
If anyone out there can help us in identifying the date of this shoe we would be very grateful. It was discovered during our excavations at Wednesbury, in deposits which could date from the 16th to the late-18th centuries.
Location: Coalbrookdale, Shropshire, United Kingdom
