OLDEST ICE SKATES ARE FROM FINLAND

“The oldest ice skates that anyone has found so far were made in Finland 2,000 years before the birth of Christ, which is to say 800 years before the Trojan War depicted by Homer in the ‘Iliad’.” These primitive devices were made from the sharpened shinbones or jawbones of cattle.”  Noted in  NY Times 02/04/18  by Marita
