Shakespeare’s London Study Day with Andante Travel

MOLA team

MOLA’s resident Shakespearean archaeology expert, Julian Bowsher, will be leading a study day on the 23 April 2013 for respected archaeological travel experts Andante Travels.

Archaeological excavations in London have revealed sites from prehistory to the industrial revolution but momentously, no less than six Shakespearean playhouses have been investigated by MOLA over the last 25 years.

This work has complemented, and even surpassed, the limited documentary sources that previously existed as our only evidence for the layout and appearance of these buildings.

The study day will be spent looking at some of this evidence – first by handling some of the artefacts found during excavation, then by exploring the Bankside area of London to visit some of the sites most famously associated with the nation’s favourite bard.
