Taught by: THL Seathán MacDhabhidh
1 hour. No cost. No size or age restrictions.
A discussion and presentation of period rhymed couplet tales for commoners as told in taverns and inns in the 12th and 13th centuries. Content was usually comical and often coarse or cynical and was designed for a public audience. Themes often made fun of the clergy and upper classes and were designed to entertain the low-born. These tales might have been a way for a traveling bard to earn/trade for a meal and place to sleep while traveling from village to village.
