Summary To coincide with the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, Cambridge historian Helen Castor and a team of archaeologists embark on the first ever investigation of Shakespeare's grave. They discover if there's truth to the rumours that his grave, which carries a curse, has been tampered with. They explore a Victorian story that Shakespeare's skull was stolen by trophy hunters; a trail that leads to a mystery skull stashed in a crypt beneath a church. 400 years after Shakespeare's death, this program aims to separate the fact from the folklore
