Child's sandals. New Kingdom, about 1550-1069 BCE. From Thebes, Egypt. The British Museum, (photo taken at The Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia).

Sandals are often found in tombs. They are usually made of woven reeds or wood, but this pair is made of leather. Sandals could be a sign of wealth, as most adults and children are depicted barefoot in ancient Egyptian art.
