THE LONDON OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE/BANKSIDE FROM BLACKFRIARS BRIDGE TO TOWER BRIDGE

Shakespeare was active in London from the 1590s to 1616. This was a time of cultural advances stimulated by the glittering Elizabethan period and the growing consciousness of Renaissance ideas. This course will put into focus the great period of theatre at that time: it will particularly use the texts of plays, maps and panoramas and the importance of archaeology in recent years to recreate the whole range of life in the city.


The south bank of the river still contains much of the atmosphere of Shakespeare’s time: we will use this WALK contemporary evidence of maps to recreate the world of inns, hostelries, theatre sites, prisons, London Bridge, and above all the river and its pulsating life.
