From the Mozhaysk excavation, near Moscow:
A birch bark shoe inner?

Береста обработанная (обрезана дугой). Фрагмент.
Этот образец найден сильно скрученным. Поэтому, его пару дней вымачивали в воде, а затем, для съемки, мокрым помести между двумя стеклами. Кто-то высказал гипотезу, что это часть стельки :(. Конечно, было бы интересней найти берестяную грамоту, но пока, увы…

White part of processed birch bark, (it is cut in an arc). Fragment.
This item was found strongly twisted. Therefore, to its vapor of days they soaked in the water, and then, for the survey, wet place between two glass. Someone expressed hypothesis, that this is the part of the inner sole :( Certainly, it would be more interestingly find birch bark certificate, but thus far, alas...

A slipper

Обувь с ноги погребенного. Кожа хорошей выделки.

Больше всего, этот предмет напоминает тапочки. Так вот, может, с каких еще пор бытует выражение «в гробу… в … тапочках»?
Foot-wear from the foot of that buried. The skin grow prettier preparation.
Most of all, this object resembles slippers. So here, can, from what still times does exist the expression "in to coffin... in... the slippers"?

This is from a belt, not a shoe, but looks similar enough for comparison.

Накладка ременная. Цветной металл (бронза?). Найдена в слое XII – нач. XIII вв. Прекрасно сохранились обе стороны накладки с крепежом и частью кожаного ремня между ними.

Cover plate is belt. Nonferrous metal (bronze?). It is found in the layer OF THE XII - beginning. Both sides of cover plate with the fastening also of the partly leather belt between them were wonderfully preserved BY THE XIII of substances.

Can't find the actual shoes themselves, damnit.

There is also a very nice comb, another comb">, an amber bead, a knife sheath, a jews harp, hazelnuts!,
