History and the Morris Dance

History and the Morris Dance $22.99

John Cutting

Published by DanceBooks

'Where did morris come from, and what was it for?'

After thirty years of dancing, teaching, and research, John Cutting attempts to answer these questions

From the earliest known references (1137 in Spain, 1448 in England) to the middle of the nineteenth century morris events are listed and examined, while a parallel study looks at publications about morris, from the Puritans down to the present day

Many illustrations, portraying morris or possible morris dancers, from the fourteenth century onwards are reproduced in the text
