All modern code of football can trace their roots back to a Medieval ball game played in Europe which was played as part of the festivities observed in the Christian calendar between Epiphany and Easter Sunday and in particular Shrovetide the day before lent. These ball games were played in different areas under different names taken from different languages. The format of the games also varied from one place to another but the same basic essential concepts of how the game was played were the same. These games include "Caid" meaning 'Ball' Ireland the ancestor of Gaelic football, "Calcio" played in Florence Italy, Cornish Hurling "Hyrlîan", Welsh Hurling "Cnapan", a game called "La Soule" meaning 'The Ball' played in Northern France, "Ba" pronounced baw meaning 'Ball' played in Scotland and "Ball play" or "Playing at ball" or significantly "fote-ball" played in England. It is from these games all modern football games evolved and the game played in England called fote-ball it is the game which was first coded as a physical education subject in English Public school. This game was spread to the English speaking world where it evolved into all modern codes of football. These games include American football, Canadian football, Australian Rules football, Gaelic football, Rugby Union football Rugby league football and of course Association football also known as Soccer.
