17th century theatre uncovered in Dublin

The foundations of a 17th century theatre, as well as a number of artifacts from performances staged there, has been found at a dig in Dublin.

It was the first theatre in Dublin to secure a royal patent, issued following Oliver Cromwell’s death, and had close ties with Covent Garden in London, with which acts were shared.

It is now being reinstated on its original site by the River Liffey in the heart of the capital, where an archaeological excavation has just been completed.
