The Legend of Robin Hood is a traditional English tale dating back into the middle ages.

In the 17th century, ballads were composed explaining how various Merry Men met Robin Hood.

Here is one of the traditional stories about Robin and how he met 'Little John', from The English and Scottish Popular Ballads by Francis James Child, 1888.

The language used is an example of the way in which people wrote in the past.

The spellings are those used by Francis Child.


Next to each verse there is a text box if you want to make 'notes', correct spellings, write the main idea ....
