    Life as an Outlaw

    In March last year, I filmed Paul Cook, Senior Ranger at Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve, talk about what life would have been like as an Outlaw and how the forest was so useful. It was a really cold day and the sound is not that great but you should a really good feel for how Robin Hood may have lived.

    Paul starts by talking about how taxation was introduced to help fund the wars in the holy lands (Crusades). Taxation was unpopular (even more so than it is now) and the penalties for not paying taxes were horrific.

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway
