  • Adult size one-piece shoe with a pointed toe. The upper and sole are made from one-piece of leather. The shoe has a thong-sewn vertical seam up the front of the vamp and up the back of the heel. The vamp seam terminates in a bifurcated tongue. This shoe has been identified by Quita Mould (2012) as probably an Irish Early Christian shoe of Lucas Type 2 (County Louth Arch Jrnl (1956)). Records indicate that the shoe was purchased for the London Museum collections and has no London connections.
