Martin Graebe Njall and 'Ballad Dancing' (4) Njall and 'Ballad Dancing' 01 Jul 02


In preparation for our trip to Iceland at the end of this month (following in the tracks of Sabine Baring-Gould) Shan has been reading the Icelandic Sagas as her contribution to the pre-trip research. In Njall's Saga she has found a reference to there being a choice of evening's entertainment - that they could either hear a saga or do 'Ballad Dancing'. Anyone know what Ballad Dancing was in this context?
