    Dearest Robin Hood,

    Q: What color were Robin Hood's tights? A: Red.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Era accuracy:

    The earliest stories were ballads dating from the fifteenth century. The longest and most important of these were 'A Gest of Robyn Hode'.
    Robin and his merry men wear a good mantel of scarlet and raye, a kind of striped bright wrap. The red was worn to indicate his leadership as scarlet was the most expensive cloth in medieval England, dyed using kermes, the dried bodies of the female shield louse (kermes ilicis).

    This also explains the name Robin, associated with the robin redbreast - and that of his closest associate Will Scarlet.

    It is only in later versions that 'Lincoln Green' becomes the color for the outlaws gear. But even this may not have been green.
    Lincoln was the capital of the medieval English dying industry. 'Lincoln Green' was green (blue dye made from woad was over-dyed with yellow) but 'Lincoln Grain' was scarlet, dyed with the above mentioned kermes, known as 'graine'.

    The early stories were obsessed with clothing. As well as Robin being named after his headgear, mantles, kirtles, coats, breeches, shirts and six different colors of cloth are mentioned in the 'Gest', and at one point Robin plays at being draper, selling the King 123 feet of green cloth.
    This has prompted the idea that the ballads may have been written for the Livery Guilds, companies of merchants involved in manufacturing. Many of them were founded at the same time the 'Gest' was written in 1460. There preferred style of uniform was a colored hood.

    Historians may suggest that the stories are not the traditional 'forest vs town' or 'rich vs poor' battle, but the victory of the merchant adventurer over the failing nobility. Robin Hood, dressed in his expensive red cloth, was really the champion of the emerging middle class rather than the poor.

    What great research! I'll have to change the cloak to scarlet. As there's no other mention of what color Robin's clothes were before Lincoln green I'll just keep that. What color is 'raye' though? Couldn't find it on google!

    While searching for a nice place to sit and write a book,
    I find that an old piece of literature has been edited by a dastardly llama riding clown.

    I could not edit the book. It seems the hard edit has stuck... I was going to leave a picture.
    It seems that your pfniffeling of the document is permanent.

    Honestly, I would rather get pfniffeled this way than by your damned mage hirelings. That was close.
    Your boat escape is worthy of praise however!
