Thread Name: What exactly is Morris dancing?
Subject: RE: What exactly is Morris dancing?
Buy this book (See "Stations of the Sun; Hutton) - it is the best collection of historically sound writing about old traditions.


It's origins are not pagan or pre-christian and nothing to do with fertility. The Morris escaped from the courts of the rich and was taken up and kept alive mostly by agricultural working people for hundreds of years! Amazin!!
