Abstract:
"In a bare room with a raftered roof couples are energetically dancing, holding hands behind their backs, or above their heads. The women, with one exception, are young and handsome, the men ugly and plebeian. A seated fiddler plays with closed eyes (right). Through a doorway partly covered with curtains the bride and bridegroom are seen embracing. On the wall is a placard: 'They dance in a round, cutting capers and ramping. A mercy the ground did not burst with their stamping.The floor is all wett, with leaps and with jumps, while the water and sweat, splish splash in their pumps'."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
