Item description for Stepping Through Time: Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times Until 1800 by Olaf Goubitz, Carol Van Driel-Murray & Willy Groenman-Van Waateringe...

Drawing on 25 years' experience as a conservator of archaeological leather, Goubitz presents a typological catalogue of footwear dating from 800-1800 AD. The study is based on Goubitz' analysis of an important assemblage of shoes recovered from excavations at Dordrecht in the Netherlands but the volume's aim is to offer guidance for the identification of shoes found on sites across north-western Europe. In addition, contributions by van Driel-Murray and Groenman-van Waateringe examine evidence for shoe types in prehistoric Europe and the north-western provinces of the Roman Empire, periods which inevitably have left less evidence. The fully illustrated catalogue follows a comprehensive discussion of shoes styles and technology including height standards, iconography, material, patterns, stitches, soles, the identification and dating of fragments and conservation. The volume should prove a useful tool for Roman and, especially, medieval historians and archaeologists.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stepping Through Time: Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times Until 1800?

An incredible coverage of the subject  Mar 28, 2007
For anyone studying shoemaking or fashion in history this book is an absolute masterwork. It is a definitive account of the shoes we have recovered throughout the entire period commonly called the European medieval period up till the Regency period. The author has reconstructed and drawn every shoe he discusses including renderings of the original find as well as an interpretation of how he shoe would have looked new. He includes virtually every known permutation of a shoe design throughout the period as well as providing just enough analysis to draw your own conclusions based on the finds the author details.

While the layout of the book can be confusing, the incredible scope of the book more than makes up for it. For anyone doing recreation or studying shoemaking or costume design this book is utterly indispensable. It is up there with The Elements of Style for a must have work.
