Trivia: After Robin and his men arrive in Nottingham, Will Scarlet and Little John are in a tavern admiring the women - Will advises his comrades not to go for the most beautiful woman, but to go for her less attractive friends, thus ensuring success. This is the expression of Game Theory, as explained by John Nash (also played by Russell Crowe) in A Beautiful Mind.

Question: An interesting wind-up lute-type musical instrument is played at one point. Would such an instrument have existed at that time?

Answer: By "Wind-up lute", I assume you mean the hurdy-gurdy. Certainly, instruments fitting the description of the hurdy-gurdy were around in the time when Robin Hood was set.
