Thread Name: Robin Hood in the Crusades?
Subject: RE: Robin Hood in the Crusades?
I'm with the first poster, Doug, on the topic of Robin in the Crusades. I much prefer the image of Robin in Sherwood Forest, irritating the sheriff and robbing the rich to help the poor.

If the moviemakers prefer violence and want to make a movie about the Crusades, let them pick a different title.

I won't be seeing the movie, so tell me the critical thing. Does it have any good early (or imitation early) music?

Hello, Wandering Minstel. I guess you were joking about the passage from Chaucer in Middle English.

I don't know if you have seen any of them, but sometimes people post here in the broads Scots dialect. I find the Middle English easier to understand than those posts. In fact, I have come to ignore them completely - they're just too much hassle.

The only word in the Chaucer that made me pause was 'arwes' = arrows.
