I read Howard Pyle's Robin Hood wherein it is written (on whatever it is they write it on up there):
A certain one sayeth that upon a stone at Kirklees is an old inscription. This I give in the ancient English in which it was written, and thus it runs:
HEAR UNDERNEAD DIS LAITL STEAN LAIS ROBERT EARL OF HUNTINGTUN NEA ARCIR VER AS HIE SAE GEUD AN PIPL KAULD IM ROBIN HEUD SICK UTLAWS AS HI AN IS MEN VIL ENGLAND NIDIR SI AGEN OBIIT 24 KAL. DEKEMBRIS 1247.
So naturally I was curious and I found this grave marker in a Google search.
Is there any evidence that anyone is buried underneath this stone? Can you date an inscription like this?
