Shakespeare dig to delve into Tudor soil

Archaeologists digging at the home of William Shakespeare are set to excavate soil that has been untouched for 400 years.

The live archaeological project will explore foundations and other remains thought to date from Shakespeare’s era, which were uncovered shortly before the Dig was put under wraps for winter.  Dr Paul Edmondson, Head of Learning & Research at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, said, “We are now down to virgin ground which has not been excavated by previous expeditions.  This is where we have the most exciting potential to shed new light on Shakespeare’s life and times.”
