SHAKESPEARE’S TOMB REVIEWED

“Shakespeare’s Tomb” is a documentary that wants to bust myths about Shakespeare’s final resting place. While feeling more like a History Channel program, there is serious academic effort given to the quest to find the validity of the tomb. For an hour long documentary, the bigger questions are naturally dodged. However, issues of curses and other such fantasy nonsense get drudged up to sucker in the groundlings. While not amazing, it’s well worth a viewing.

The Plot Thus Far

To coincide with the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, University of Cambridge historian Dr. Helen Castor and a team of archaeologists embark on the first-ever scientific investigation of Shakespeare’s grave. They seek to discover if there’s any truth to the rumors that his grave, which carries a curse against any man who ‘moves his bones’, has been tampered with. The investigation also explores a Victorian story that Shakespeare’s skull was stolen by trophy hunters, following a trail that leads to a mystery skull stashed in a crypt beneath a country church. Will removing the church step and taking a 3D scan of the skull confirm if it’s a possible match for Shakespeare? Four hundred years after Shakespeare’s death, this program aims to separate the fact from the folklore surrounding the Bard.
