Imagine the Woman Who Wore This

Found recently at an archaeological project in Armenia - a woman's leather shoe. Cowhide. Tanned with oil. Size 7. Right foot. 5,500 years old. Imagine the woman who wore it, who pulled the lace through the small eyelets, put the other shoe on, laced it up, went about her work - before the pyramids were built, before Stonehenge.
