Now 65 sword dance and morris teams on the SDU Map of UK swordists. Who do you know on the remaining list?


November 13, 2013 by tommy

A week ago the SDU placed a Google map on the website, listing sword dance teams in the UK. It has generated a large amount of interest and hits and consisted of 42 teams to start with.

We’ve updated to 65 teams; longsword, rapper, morris teams that sword and other teams that sword. However there are still a fair few teams that aren’t on the map.
