Manitas_at_home Folklore: Border Morris Origins? (28) RE: Folklore: Border Morris Origins? 23 Feb 15

There was a reference in a book about the Templars to a soldier bringing home dances he had observed Muslim troops using to train themselves to move together but the author didn't cite any sources. I believe there has been reference here to morris-like dances being performed in North Africa but I suppose this is just as likely to have been transported from Spain to North Africa as the other way.
