Mosaic of a pair of sandals from the entrance of the Burnt Palace, forming part of the Archeological Park of Madaba, Jordan. This mosaic indicated that shoes should be removed on entering the building. The Palace was a late 6th century private mansion destroyed by fire and earthquake in 749 AD. Its name stems from the thick ashy layer overlying the mosaic pavement when excavated. Picture by Manuel Cohen
