Ancient dress and adornment have received significant consideration in recent scholarship, though, strikingly, feet and footwear have featured relatively little in this discussion. This volume aims to rectify this imbalance through its fifteen chapters covering a wide range of aspects associated with feet and footwear in classical antiquity. Contributions are grouped under four headings: 'Envisaging footwear', 'Following footprints', 'One from a pair' and 'Between representation and reality', reflecting the broad range and interdisciplinary nature of the approaches undertaken."@en ;
