New Robin Hood Manuscript

I'm not sure why some fictional medieval figures have faded into obscurity, and others have flourished. Robin Hood is definitely one who has flourished. has links and also an interview about the new Robin Hood manuscript.

Academics will probably be most interested in the interview, non-academics in the original article.

No word yet on whether or not the marginalia depicts him as an anthropomorphic fox.

    Aaagh! You've just added a Disney soundtrack to my day...

  2. Every town
    Has its ups and down
    Sometime ups
    Outnumber the downs
    But not in Nottingham
    I'm inclined to believe
    If we were so down
    We'd up and leave
    We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
    Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
    Can't there be some happiness for me?
    Not in Nottingham

    ... or perhaps you were thinking of the more discoesque score?

  3. Thank you for posting a link to our interview. Dr. Luxford was very gracious and quick in responding to my questions.
