GUEST,just another guest New Book: Folk Song in England (2094* d) RE: New Book: Folk Song in England 10 Jul 18


“ploughboys, mikmaids, miners and weavers” is a quote from Roud. In the context it is used I think it could be read as something like ‘the common folk’.( am not going to stirr the pot with a full quote...)

‘Medieval ploughs’ - with the sort of ploughshare you could beat a sword into - are still used behind oxen in the developing world. Sometimes by boys.
