Excerpt from Anecdotes of the Manners and Customs of London From the Roman Invasion to the Year 1700, Vol. 3: Including the Origin of British Society, Customs and Manners, With a General Sketch of the State of Religion, Superstition, Dresses, and Amusements of the Citizens of London, During That Period

At a later period, refinement might introduce bards, who sung or recited the favourite exploits of their wars whether they had dances appropriated to martial purposes, is doubtful at least, though probable: a rude harp is, however, assigned them by antient authors.'
