GUEST,Derek Schofield Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance (85* d) RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance 29 Apr 18


A few points of clarification. Only one of the horns was carbon dated, in the 1970s.
The date quoted, circa 1065 AD is about right.
There is no evidence that the horns were used for a dance until many centuries later.
There is no evidence that the Robinson tune was used for the dancing.
