Shakespeare's Tomb - DVD - 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. This DVD features subtitles in English.
