Roman Soldier's Footprint Reveals Clues to Ancient





Archaeologists have uncovered a footprint made by a
sandal-clad Roman soldier in a wall surrounding an
ancient city in Israel that Jesus might have visited.

The print was made by a strappy, leather sandal of a
type worn by the Roman military. Called caliga, the
sandals of this time had iron hobnails hammered into
their soles, which provided durability and traction as
well as a weapon when kicking.
