The early days of Robin Hood
Published May 30, 2009
My only knowledge of Robin Hood comes from three places: that film with Kevin Costner, the film by Mel Brooks, and the current BBC TV series. I know that all three are a pile of tosh, there for pure entertainment value rather than anything historical or mythical. Therefore, I’ve started looking into the legend of Robin Hood and would like to share some of my findings with you. Naturally, no one knows whether Robin Hood was a real person or not, but he has certainly been given plenty of attention in words and pictures throughout the years.
