Footwear on the Queen Anne’s Revenge, North Carolina Shipwreck 31CR314.

Author(s): Elise B Carroll

Year: 2018


Footwear has been considered a necessity throughout history and examples have been seen throughout archaeological sites. The North Carolina shipwreck 31CR314, Queen Anne’s Revenge, has yielded a few examples of different footwear components. This includes a few examples of shoe buckles and notably a leather fragment with four wooden pegs. The leather fragment has been recently recovered from a concretion and is presently believed to be associated with a shoe heel stack. Though the presence of shoes is well documented in the historical record, the entire structure of shoes was not, leading to issues in identifying this fragment. This poster will identify archaeological evidence associated with footwear recovered from site and discuss the archaeological evidence in the context of 18th century maritime society, specifically why the leather fragment is believed to be categorized as a fragment from footwear.
