3,000-Year-Old Shoe.

Found: the oldest shoe ever. Estimated to be over 3,000 years old!

We first believed that the shoe was only 1000 years old, but to our great surprise the analysis of the leather showed it to be 3,400 years old, says Oppland County Archaeologist Espen Finstad to Aftenposten. [...]

The shoe therefore dates back to old bronze age, roughly from 1800 to 1100 years before Christ.

Before christ? Why not before zeus, vulcan or Frida, or any of the other dozens of mythical characters that never existed? What's wrong with just saying 3000 years ago?

In 1938 archaeologist Luther Cressman (from the University of Oregon) excavated at Fort Rock Cave, located in a small volcanic butte approximately half a mile west of the Fort Rock volcanic crater in central Oregon. The Fort Rock Basin is the most northwesterly sub-basin of the Great Basin, Western North America's vast intermontane desert.
