what did robin hood fight for User: what \most accurately describes the Robin Hood ballads
Weegy: Robin Hood is a figure which has already survived for more than 700 years and the legend is still going strong today. The first time we come across the name "Robin Hood" although spelt differently, is in the last half of the 13th century. [ Since then the legend has spread and evolved, and above all survived.

Finally I will consider whether or not the legend, as it looks today as well as the way it has looked, can be used as historical source material and how. So let us begin… "Sherwood in the twilight, is Robin Hood awake? … Calling as he used to call, faint and far away, in Sherwood, in Sherwood, about the ... (More)
