It contains the rolls of both courts for the second half of the year 1250, illustrating the development of the common law and providing information about a variety of people, places and subjects, from a hunting dispute between St Albans abbey and one of its knights to the activitiesof a criminal gang in Staffordshire and a settlement between neighbouring lords about the return of stray hunting dogs. A comprehensive index of persons and places is also included.

DAVID CROOK, now retired, spent his working life in The National Archives, where he became immersed in the extensive surviving early records of the English royal administration and common law. From those sources have emerged important findings which may identify a real criminal as the original of the legendary English outlaw Robin Hood.
