Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
how can I put this? I am in no position to comment on the relationship between John of Gaunt and anything but the relationship between evidence based in honest historical scholarship and Morris websites is often slight.

"Dartington Morris see its birth in the Spanish Christians and Moors dance pageants of the late 13th century, with later connections through John of Gaunt, but have no evidence to support it, and are forced to see links a hundred years later"

Sums it up quite well
