- Jim Bradbury
15th October 2012
Robin Hood - the legendary outlaw who stole from the rich to give to the poor. From the medieval era to the present day, we have sung about him, listened to tales, watched him and his Merry Men in plays, on TV and even on the silver screen. We really are fascinated with this heroic archer. But what do we really know about the man and the origins of the legend? Experienced author and historian Jim Bradbury goes in search of the truth, looking at the historical sources, the real-life candidates, his appearances in popular culture over the centuries, and his continuing popularity.
