ON YOUR FEET: Boots & Shoes in History

This is a new talk inspired by the wonderful shoe exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, 13 June 2015 – 31 January 2016.

Close-up of John Fagge's legsHave you ever looked at the shoes that Henry VIII was wearing for his Holbein portrait? And did you wear stilettos in the sixties, like me? Would you gentlemen have stuffed the toes of your very pointed leather shoes with moss in the 14th century?

This talk will reveal all, especially your coloured stockings and naughty ankles.
