Who was Robin Hood and what is his connection with St Mary’s Abbey in York? Who was the ‘rich abbot’ and was he really grasping and greedy? Was Robin Hood a generous outlaw and if he visited St Mary’s Abbey what would he have seen? This course will examine the evidence for an historical Robin Hood, the possible candidates and the links to St Mary’s Abbey. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
