Norway’s oldest shoe recovered from melting ice

According to a new report from norwegian university of science and technology (NTNU).

Unlike objects trapped in acidic ground or under gargantuan glaciers, artifacts recovered from Norwegian ice sheets are often found in pristine condition, showing minimal decay and deformation, even after thousands of years of frozen sleep. This is because ice sheets are relatively stable, immobile, and free of corrosive compounds. Perfectly weapons intactclothing, textiles, and plant and animal remains have all emerged from the ice, helping to shed light on thousands of years of Norwegian history.
