Episode Summary

EDIT
The Outlaw
AIRED:
Unlike the altruistic Robin Hood of legend, outlaws were often members of the landed gentry who robbed the poor to give to the rich. Remarkably, however, these outlaws gained a place of respect in society. And as for the poor commoner needing help from a hooded man - false. Instead they had lawyers, were more litigious than Americans, and paid their bills in butter and cheese. Tripping over a crack in the cart track could be a profitable business even hundreds of years ago.moreless
