    Robin Hood


    The story of Robin Hood, the most popular English folk hero of all times, has reached every corner of the Earth. There are many versions of this well-known tale which is about 600 years old. Everybody knows Robin’s friends (Little John, Brother Tuck, Will Scarlet), and the famous Sherwood Forest - Robin Hood’s home and the place where many of his adventures took place. In other countries there are similar stories, such as William Tell in Switzerland, El Cid in Spain or Janosik in Poland, but only Robin Hood has become an ‘international’ hero.



    Unfortunately, there is almost no evidence that Robin Hood really existed. Thirteenth-century ballads, fourteenth-century chronicles, a sixteenth-century History of Great Britain, all talk about Robin Hood. However, none of them tells us about the sources they used. In the 1800s and 1900s, historians found two Robin Hoods who lived in the fourteenth century. One of them was even King Edward II’s servant. Later on, other historians found several different Hoods living in different parts of England – Robin was a popular Christian name and Hood was a fairly common surname. It seems that by 1337, the story of Robin Hood was well established. Most probably, he lived around the year 1200.



    Today, the legend of Robin Hood has turned Nottinghamshire into a large tourist attraction. In the centre of Nottingham there is Nottingham Castle. Parts of it still recall the time of Robin Hood. Sherwood forest has an excellent visitor’s centre with an attractive display and shop, and some very pleasant walks in the nearby forest. Edwinstowe church, in which, according to tradition, Robin Hood and Lady Marion were married, is one of the visitors’ favourite sites.

    Read the text about the pirates. Then match the paragraph titles (A–I) with the paragraphs (1–8). There is one extra title.

    Pirates

    1 _____ When you hear the word pirate, you probably see a man with a wooden leg, a piece of black cloth over one eye, dressed in seventeenth-century clothes. On his shoulder, there is a parrot. Most likely, you can picture him standing next to a box full of treasure under a palm tree somewhere on a desert island.

    2 _____ A pirate was a bandit who sailed the seas in search of ships carrying valuable things.

    3 _____ Almost all of the pirates’ ships flew the famous Jolly Roger which was a black flag with a skull and two white bones on it.

    4 _____ When a pirate got on a ship, he stole everything and killed the sailors.

    5 _____ Then he sold the stolen goods in the nearest port and spent all the money on various forms of entertainment, usually on drinking beer and rum.

    6 _____ However, the pirates were very disciplined. There was order and discipline on their ships because they wanted their actions to be successful. Some pirates did not obey the rules and they were punished in a cruel way.

    7 _____ Pirates did not spend all the money they stole. Often, they buried the treasure in some distant place so that it was very difficult to find for many years. Many treasure boxes were never found.

    8 _____ Watch out! Maybe the next time you walk along the beach you will step on something big and heavy?
