A shoe discovered in a professor's office has been found to be more than 6,000 years old.
The wooden shoe was first found in the melting snow of a glacier in the Italian Dolomite mountains by cartographer Simone Bartolini in 2003.
He displayed it in his office at the Military Geographic Institute in Florence as a memento, thinking it once belonged to a 19th century farmer.
Carbon-dating by two different labs has found the shoe dates back between 3800-3700 BC.
It is made of a 1.5m length of birch wood, bent and lashed into an oval shape.

"The glacier has given us an exceptional testimony.
"It indicates that as early as the late Neolithic period people with proper equipment were present on the alpine watershed at an altitude of over three thousand metres."
