The Mary Rose -- still drying out in Portsmouth, England. The Mary Rose was named for Henry VIII's sister and was a favourite among the ships in his navy.

This particular leather shoe was discovered on the ill-fated flag ship of Henry VIII's, the Mary Rose. Sadly, many men lost their lives when it sank. This particular shoe most likely belonged to a sailor. Shoes, especially those belonging to "peasant" folk are a rare find. The reason? Shoes were expensive. The normal person would wear them until they fell apart. Thus, few intact shoes remain to the present day! This shoe is a rare and important find.
