Spirit of the woods, literary invention or historical reality? The attempt to pin down one of the most familiar figures of English lore has generally become swamped in a mass of speculation or historical aporia.

Scholars have tended to turn their attention, with more result, to the study of the corpus of the legends, tracing their history and their interrelation, as well as extrapolating what they can tell us of twelfth- and thirteenth-century England.In this book one of the most authoritative scholars on the period has taken a fresh look at the evidence for an historical Robin Hood, and has come up with some remarkably plausible conclusions about his identity, that of his famous adversary the Sheriff of Nottingham, and even some of Robins companions.
