One Roll: Rumburgh Morris dancers

Morris dancing is an old English tradition dating from the 15th Century. No one really knows its origin exactly but it is likely to have come from outside the UK. It is mentioned in several texts and it has been recorded that Will Kempe danced from London to Norwich in the year 1600.

This is the Rumbough Morris from Suffolk, taken in May on a Rolleiflex T with Fujifilm NPH 400.
