This collection of essays on the Robin Hood tradition explores both its medieval contexts and the evolution of the legend after the medieval period. They deal with Robin Hood in literature and drama, with local traditions, monuments and forgeries, with folkloric connections, and with the changing perspectives of antiquarian and modern studies of the Robin Hood material.
