Jim Bradbury has been publishing history books since 1975. The subject of Robin Hood has been a lifelong interest, saved for full study until now. He has spent several years researching the Robin Hood literature and the historical background that could relate to an original real Robin Hood. The book looks at both aspects: at how the Robin Hood legend has developed over the centuries up to the present in, for example, poems, tales, plays, novels, musicals, cinema and TV, and at what historical evidence can tell us about the origins of that legend to pinpoint a time and place for a real person in the later middle ages.
