In historical times, around BC it was the settlement of a Celtic tribe , the Bituriges Vivisci , who named the town Burdigala, probably of Aquitanian origin. The name Bourde is still the name of a river south of the city. The Romans were defeated and their commander, the consul Lucius Cassius Longinus , was killed in the action. The city fell under Roman rule around 60 BC, its importance lying in the commerce of tin and lead towards Rome. Later it became capital of Roman Aquitaine , flourishing especially during the Severan dynasty 3rd century. In it was sacked by the Vandals.
Archaeologists estimate that the leather shoe was made between and BC,  making it the oldest article of clothing discovered in Scandinavia. It is thought that shoes may have been used long before this, but because the materials used were highly perishable, it is difficult to find evidence of the earliest footwear. This led archaeologists to deduce that wearing shoes resulted in less bone growth, resulting in shorter, thinner toes. They were more commonly found in colder climates.
These are tight-fitting, soft-soled shoes typically made out of leather or bison hides.
These shoes, first sold in , are double-layer canvas shoes with rubber soles and toe caps, and a high heel known as a “high top” for added support.

From ancient temples to crystalline waters, here are our top destinations to visit this year. When Pope Francis visits Mexico City next month, he will draw the faithful from around the country. The Mexican capital, though, is attracting pilgrims of another kind: With young people from around Latin America and Spain streaming into the city, and the Mexican peso hitting record lows against the dollar, the city — daunting and endless as it is — radiates energy.
Certainly, there is no more exciting place to eat. Enrique Olvera, who reinvented Mexican cuisine at Pujol, has inspired a generation of restaurants in his wake; recent openings include Fonda Fina in La Roma and Fonda Mayora in nearby Condesa.
