Ons eerste ArcheotopstukDordt was een 14e/15e eeuws kinderschoentje. Prachtig opengewerkt en misschien zelfs wel beschilderd leer. Helaas was de vindplaats niet bekend. Maar het mooie is: we hebben nog zo’n soort schoentje in de collectie! Ook daar heeft rond 1400 een peuter op rondgestapt, maar ook van deze vondst - ArcheotopstukDordt #39 - was niet meer bekend waar in Dordrecht de Rijksdienst het precies had opgegraven… Tot voor kort, want een gesprek met een archeoloog die destijds voor…

Child's shoe. It has a latchet fastening (a leather strap split into two at the end, which goes through a pair of holes). The wear on this shoe shows that the child who wore them was 'pigeon toed' - they walked with their feet pointing inwards. This distorted the shoe so much that it split and had to be re-stitched back together. Medieval shoes were made by 'cordwainers' (the word comes from 'cordwain', or 'cordovan', the name for the leather made in Córdoba, Spain). Late Medieval; late 14th

Oseberg Awl, a leather working tool design to stab holes in leather for a needle and thread to pass through the hole for stitching leather. An awl similar to this would have been used to create the leather work on shield facings, shield rims, guige straps and enarmes.

Adult size right foot shoe with a pointed toe. The sole is missing. The upper comprises a vamp and separate one-piece quarters. The shoe is front fastening with the strap and small circular iron buckle still in situ. The buckle is attached with a leather thong. There are stitch holes in the inside of the quarters for the (now missing) heel stiffener. Part of the rand survives (from the toe area) and has extra, larger stitch holes in it which indicate that the shoe once had a clump (repair)…
