Abstract or description

The grave of William Shakespeare is one of the most famous, and most visited, burials in England. But what lies beneath the strangely-shaped stone bearing his name, and are 19th-century legends of graverobbers and stolen bones true? Kevin Colls reports on the first-ever archaeological investigation of the playwright’s tomb – and its surprising findings.
