Robin Hood's mile

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2014-10-16. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2017-05-08.

Robin Hood's mile is a mile considerably longer than the reconized length, perhaps even, as Dobson & Taylor suggest, "a mile of several times the recognized length".[1] Presumably this expression has itrs background in exaggerated claims about Robin Hood's flight shooting abilities.
