Welcome to another edition of Switch the Envelope presents History of Fiction. On this installment, Jeff and Cory explore the real history behind the legend of Robin Hood as depicted in the Kevin Costner film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Turns out the Robin Hood story that we all know and love is wrought with historical inaccuracies including, but not limited to, misplacing the era it takes place by almost a century. Journey with us to 12 (or 13th) Century England, deep into the forest of Barnsdale as we seek to find the true history of this fiction.
