Hi all,

finished a adult size version of a child's campagus from the 1st half of the 4th cent AD. The original is in the museum in Luxembourg. I couldn't find out much about this shoe really - it was shown in the Constantine exhibition in Trier in 2007 and I have a few pictures of it from various sources.

I find it quite closely resembles both one of the contemporary finds from Deurne as well as what can be glimpsed from paintings and mosaics of the time. I built this one as a turnshoe, a way of construction that goes very well with this kind of shoe as I found.
