The Theatre: archaeology of an Elizabethan venue

14th September 2010


Heather Knight of the Museum of London Archaeology and Penny Tuerk of the Tower Theatre talk to Heather Neill about excavations of The Theatre, the first purpose-built venue in Elizabethan London, where several of Shakespeare’s plays were first put on. Recorded at the Museum of London Archaeology.

I’ve fallen in love with James Burbage, who was a rotter, because he was so much like modern theatre people.
