I know I’m a bit behind on some stories. Bear with me while I play catch-up? You’re the best.
Archaeologists have discovered the remains of the Bard’s old stomping grounds — ruins of a famous 16th-century theater, buried below the streets of modern London. Known in its heyday as the Curtain Theatre, it’s often been eclipsed by its more famous younger sibling, the Globe.
I saw a whole bunch of links about this one but I’m going to go with the NPR story because you can get the story in whatever way work best for you – audio or transcript, with lots of pictures.
On the one hand I agree that it is cool to have this piece of history. But I just have to admit, archaeology is not my thing. They mention “one of the nicest things they found” was a bit of a pot being used as a mousetrap.
Umm…..oh. Yay? I guess if you can’t draw a straight line between a thing and Shakespeare (and his works), it’s just not my cup of tea. Your mileage may vary.
