Shakespeare's Curtain Theatre Unearthed In East London

Well preserved remains of Shakespeare's original 'wooden O' stage, the Curtain theatre where Henry V and Romeo and Juliet were first performed, have been discovered in a yard in east London.

The Curtain theatre in Shoreditch preceded the Globe on the Thames, showcasing several of Shakespeare's most famous plays. But it was dismantled in the 17th century and its precise location lost.
