THE LONDON OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE/THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF SHAKESPEAREAN THEATRES

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.


Much archaeological work has been undertaken in recent years to understand the construction of “the wooden O”. The discovery and excavation of the Rose Theatre has been of seminal importance and we will also see the evidence for the Globe and the latest discoveries of the Fortune. From here we will see how London itself figured in certain plays which the audience would recognise.
