GD1 Animate a Nursery Rhyme

Posted on January 22nd, 2020

Nursery rhymes are often associated with historical events and the meaning given to many a rhyme can be seen as political satire. The first really important English rhyme dates back to the fourteenth century. This little rhyme was passed quickly from one person to another, was easily remembered and led to an English revolution - a call for recognition and class equality!

When Adam delved and Eve span
Who was then a gentleman

( To delve means to work and 'span' refers to spinning yarn
there was no class distinction when there was only Adam and Eve )
