Discovering Robin Hood: The Life of Joseph Ritson - Gentleman, Scholar and Revolutionary by Stephen
[hardcover]
£25.00

isbn 9781526777812  Pen & Sword, 2021

Joseph Ritson's name is little-known, yet it was his research in the late eighteen century that ensured the survival of the Robin Hood legend.  He travelled all over the country looking for ancient manuscripts which told of the life and deeds of the famous outlaw.

 

This is not only a story about the formation of the Robin Hood legend. Ritson’s story is one of rags to riches. Born in humble circumstances, his aptitude for learning meant that he rose through society’s ranks and became a successful lawyer, local official, and a gentleman.  264pp
