When the Spanish-Arabic traveller al-Tartushi visited Hedeby in the 900s he was surprised to hear that women had the right to divorce if they wished.

This turnshoe is made of a one piece upper, stitched to a sole with a triangular heel extension that is typical for this type. The upper is calf, the sole cow leather.
