Dear Alice,

   You asked me  Robin Hood was. History  do not tell us anything about him. But all the British boys and girls  somethin g about him. They know  from books, songs, films and television. For them Robin Hood was  in Sherwood Forest with an enemy  the Sheriff of Nottingham.                                                                  But was there  called Robin Hood? Do we really know  about him? There are many old  about Robin Hood. In some stories he lived 8 hundred years , in others he lived much . Is there any  in these stories? One thing is certain: the  in all the stories was an outlaw. It all really started in 1066 when William of Normandy  Saxon England. The new Norman king  to take everything from the Saxons - the land and their goods. All the forests  to the king, and the Saxons did not have the  to hunt any deer in . When the king needed  money, Norman sheriffs collected it  Saxons. The sheriffs took their homes and  them outlaws. Robin came from a Saxon . He became an outlaw and lived in Sherwood Forest. He  money from the rich and gave it to the poor.

   Can you tell me an old legend of your country? Write back soon!

Yours,

Susan
