Abstract:
A reassessment of the date of a woman's body found in 1747. Basing their conclusion largely on the style of her shoes, antiquaries at the time concluded that she had probably drowned in the medieval period. However, in the light of recent advances in footwear studies, an examination of early drawings and of the surviving left shoe shows that it is of a type fashioned from one piece of hide that was common in northern Europe during the later Roman period. The dating of the body has significance for other bog bodies. There is also a general discussion of the shoe type.
