Archaeologists have discovered the world's oldest shoe - around 5,500 year old from an excavation site at Armenia.




What were the fashion-conscious cave-dweller wearing 5,500 years ago? Archaeologists may just have found out. A perfectly preserved shoe, 1,000 years older than Egypt's Great Pyramid and 400 years older than Stonehenge, has been found -- buried in sheep dung in a cave in Armenia. The 5,500 year-old shoe was discovered by a team of archaeologists in a cave in the Vayotz Dzor province of Armenia, on the Iranian and Turkish borders. The shoe is the oldest piece of leather footwear in the world, a fact that came as a shock to the discoverers.

The discovery has been published in the online scientific journal PLoS ONE.

(Shakes fist at hawkiye) Beat me to it by 7 minutes. Curse you!

Yep, I saw that title and said "Helen Thomas, of course!" and flew into action, only to find you'd cruelly snatched my opportunity away.
