Ever wondered why Vindolanda has all those Roman shoes? (there are over 5000!) Ever questioned how Roman shoes were made and lasted so long? (hint: iron hobnails!) Have you pondered whether Romans cared about fashion? (they did!) If so, this talk with Roman footwear specialist, Elizabeth Greene, will have all the ingredients for a perfect night...in!

Over the years we’ve had hundreds of questions from visitors, school children, excavators and through social media about our Roman shoe collection but there are a few that are on everyone’s minds. Beth will present the top 10 questions we’ve been asked over the years and give detailed answers about the preservation of shoes in the archaeological record, the construction of Roman shoes, the use and re-use of Roman shoes and many more subjects. Join us for an exciting evening and get all your questions answered about the famous Vindolanda Roman shoes!
