It’s one of the few times that archaeologists have uncovered evidence of it youan ancient Chinese punishment.

Various clues indicate that the woman’s foot was cut off you: their bones show no signs of disease which might have necessitated such amputation; and it appears that the injury was done grossly, rather than with the precision of medical amputation.
