This chapter examines three private initiatives of national recovery during the main period of English revivalism. It states that the Boy Scouts of Robert Baden-Powell and the English folk-dance movements that were founded by Mary Neal and Cecil Sharp used both modern and traditional resources for similar revivals. The chapter also suggests the disorderly influence of conflicts about gender, race and class in the development of a new vision of Englishness.
