Right up there with forest monitors and red bearded monkeys.



The U.S.-based Parade magazine has listed the 5,500-year-old leather lace-up moccasin discovered in Armenia among the most amazing discoveries of 2010.


“An international team of archaeologists discovered what’s thought to be the world’s oldest leather shoe in a cave in Armenia. Thanks to the cave’s cool, dry conditions, the 5500-year-old leather lace-up moccasin (about a woman’s size 7) was so well-preserved that even its laces were intact,” the magazine writes.
