Every year at Lent, the whole town of Ashbourne, England gathers not to watch football, but to play it. The peculiar version they play, Shrovetide Football—in which a heaving sea of humanity wills a hand-painted, four-pound ball towards one of two goals set three miles apart--was developed in medieval times and is the origin of soccer, rugby, and American football. This spirited cross-town rivalry divides the population into posh Up’ards and the dirty Down’ards. Played for a thousand years, the game is a time-honored, quintessentially British tradition, surviving edicts from kings, revolutions, and modern life.
