LONDON (CIRCA) — They say fashion never dies and, apparently, the rumors are true.
Archaeologists in London say they found the skeleton of a 500-year-old man with his leather boots still intact.
The discovery was made at London's River Thames, according to CNN. The boots are knee-high, and leather was an expensive commodity in Tudor times.
Researchers at MOLA Headland say it is unlikely someone would be buried wearing such a highly prized item. MOLA is the firm leading the project.
There’s a decent chance the man was a fisherman. According to experts, he had deep groves in his teeth, most likely caused "by a repetitive action, like passing rope between his teeth as a fisherman might."
Despite speculation, the cause of death is unknown.
