Shoes Concealed in Buildings

Swann, June

First I shall give the facts about this practice, such as they are: its distribution, the types of buildings involved, dates of the shoes, location within the building, a little about the shoes, and associated finds. Readers may thus draw their own conclusions before finally I give the finders' and my own comments: not being superstitious myself, I found it difficult to accept the existence of these superstitions, which appear to have been ignored by previous writers.

Please note that ‘shoes’ is used as a general term for footwear of all sorts.
