Archeologists often come up with discoveries that make us realize that the world we are living in has nothing new. The things and technologies we have at present are just the modified forms of themselves from the ancient times. The recent discovery adds some weight to the above statement.
Researchers have recently dug out the thousand years old marks of one of the most famous brands of sportswear, Adidas. They have found remains of a woman in Mongolia who died about 1,500 years ago, wearing sports shoes which are identical to that of Adidas. The rare discovery made them engaged in further more studies over it.
Let’s see what the discovery reveals about Adidas or sports shoes’ history.
Archeologists have discovered partial remains of a woman who is believed to have died around 1,500 years ago.
The dead body of the Mongolian woman has been dug out from about 10,000 feet height in the Altai Mountains.
So far, they’ve discovered only one hand and, the mummy’s feet wearing traditional footwear.
They had a tradition of sacrificing a horse and bury it with dead bodies.
The woman’s body was also found buried with a mare which was just four to eight years old.
The footwear she’s been found wearing looks more like it was designed by the German sportswear brand Adidas which is identified by its iconic stripes.
The existence of boots that look like a fashionable high street brand, a thousand years ago truly seems strange.
