"Tutankhamun's Footwear" - The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter in 1922 is one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of all time. It took Carter and his team 10 years to clear the contents of the tomb. Among the objects found was a large collection of shoes including spectacular gold sandals and open shoes elaborately decorated with gold and gemstones. The lecture by André J. Veldmeijer of the PalArch Foundation (Amsterdam) introduced the Ancient Egyptian Footwear Project. The lecture was held at the Toledo Museum of Art.
