Ian Burdon Morris joins the Dodo? (185* d) RE: Morris joins the Dodo? 06 Jan 09


Mr. Linklater's comments are more ignorant than he realises as Morris Dancing - or at least some form of dancing bearing that name, was known at least as early as 1501 in Scotland since the Treasury Accounts for that year record a payment " To the men that brocht in the morice dance, and to thair menstralis" (15012 Treas. Acc. II. 135.)

Similarly sword dancing other than highland sword dancing was known since, as well as the Papa Stour sword dance of Shetland, records survive of the Kirk supressing it post reformation - in Elgin for example.
