Shakespeare, Curtain theatre, Shoreditch: The Curtain raises to reveal Shakespeare's London

Museum of London archaeologists have discovered the remains of the Curtain theatre in Shoreditch where William Shakespeare's Henry V and Romeo and Juliet were first performed. 
The Curtain, a forerunner to the Globe Theatre at Bankside, Southwark, was dismantled in the 17th Century and its exact location was lost. Foundation works were unearthed at the Curtain site in east London.
