Shoes, a sock and a boot were among the footwear from 415 individuals found. About 500 men died when the ship sank. There was no list of crew names, just a list of numbers, and only the names of the vice admiral, Sir George Carew and the master, Roger Grenville are known.
The footwear worn by Anglo-Saxons would appear to be of the simple flat-soled variety. In most illustrations footwear worn by both men and women is the same with few variations. It is from the archaeolgical record that we can determine the many different styles of shoe. The commonest method of making shoes was by the 'turn shoe' method.
