Shakespeare’s Curtain Theatre remains found

Archaeologists have discovered the remains of an Elizabethan theatre where some of William Shakespeare’s plays were first performed.
The remains of the Curtain Theatre, which opened in 1577, were found behind a pub in Shoreditch, east London, as part of regeneration works.
The venue was immortalised as “this wooden O” in the prologue to Henry V.
It is hoped the site could be opened to the public, with plays staged there in the future.
