Abstract Leather Eared Sandals, i.e. sandals with pre-straps that are cut from the sole’s leather, are a well known category of sandals in ancient Egypt, mainly because the manufacturing is depicted in scenes that decorate tombs. Based on archaeological finds, we can recognise several subcategories and types. The present paper, as part of the Ancient Egyptian Footwear Project’s publication series, presents the technological details of this category of leather sandals. As usual in this series of papers, other topics are discussed in passing.

Abstract The tenth part in the series on the manufacturing technology of ancient Egyptian footwear (phase I of the Ancient Egyptian Footwear Project) presents 15 so-called ‘leather composite sandals’. These well made sandals, usually in bright colours and decorated, are known from New Kingdom contexts; they were not a common commodity. Although the focus is on the technological aspects, several other topics will be dealt with nonetheless, albeit in passing, among which the preliminary typology.

These are good times for lovers of shoes and books about shoes: the exhibition “Schuhtick. Von kalten Füßen und heißen Sohlen” can still be visited in Bremen (until 28 March 2010), after which it moves to Mannheim (until 15 November 2010) and only Saturday 3 October, the homage-exhibition about the great pioneer of the study of leather, Olaf Goubitz, opened in the Shoe- and Leather Museum, Waalwijk (The Netherlands). Several books have been published lately, which include, besides the books on the design on footwear: “Stepping through Time. Archaeological Footwear from Prehistoric Times until 1800” by Olaf Goubitz, Carol van Driel-Murray and Willy Groenman-Van Waateringe, “The Art of the Shoe” by Marie-Josèphe Bossan and “Shoes. A History from Sandals to Sneakers”, which is edited by Giorgio Riello and Peter McNeil. …
Veldmeijer, A.J. 2007. Preliminary report on the leatherwork from Roman Berenike, Egyptian Red Sea Coast (1994–2000). – PalArch’s Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology 1, 1: 1-36

Abstract The excavations at Berenike during the 1994–2000 season yielded various finds of skin and leather. Leatherwork is one of the neglected fields in the study of ancient Egypt and it is therefore that this paper presents the leatherwork from this important site, even though the material has not been studied in as much detail as would be necessary. All discussed objects were excavated from early Roman rubbish layers.
