The answer is letter D. The European sword dances commemorate battles. These dances have been recorded through the history of the world, but since we are only talking about Europe, we will focus on that topic. Here are some examples of the sword dances: 1) Solo dancers around sword which is a traditional Scottish sword dance, 2) Mock-battle dance includes non-sword traditions and stick dances, and 3) Hilt-and-point sword dances wherein the dancers go in a circle or in a chain while they link together their swords.
Sword dances, specifically hilt-and-point and mock-battle, were performed all over Europe between 1400 and 1500. There are still a few traditional sword dances being performed in Europe such as in Austria, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany and North Italy.
