Fun piece on Robin Hood ...

by J J Cohen

... and Robin Hood Studies, and a big Robin Hood conference coming in October at the University of Rochester, in the Rochester Review.

My undergraduate advisor (and the person most instrumental to ensuring I became a medievalist) Tom Hahn figures prominently. The article mentions that he has a personal collection of over 2000 Robin Hood items. As someone who has stayed at his home, I can attest to that fact: the guest bedroom had more Robin Hood paraphernalia than you'd imagine all the sweatshops in China could create.
