William Shakespeare's grave has been shrouded in mystery for years. Researchers have determined that the late playwright's skull was 'probably stolen' over 200 years ago. Using state-of-the-art ground-penetrating radar, the team from Staffordshire University went over Shakespeare's grave site at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford with a fine-tooth comb in the hopes of confirming or denying a news report from the 19th century which claimed that his skull had been stolen from its final resting place over eight decades earlier.

Had William Shakespeare never died, he would be turning 450 years old this month, which would put him in biblical territory for longevity. As it turns out, that’s not necessarily such an unusual place for him to be.

Five years ago, James Shapiro, an American academic teaching at Columbia university in New York took the international world of Shakespeare by storm with a brilliant idea, an intimate history of the playwright through the prism of a single year. 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare was one of those books that seems so obvious it's amazing no one had thought of it before.

Did you know that there are many scholars who believe that there’s a conspiracy surrounding the plays and sonnets of Shakespeare, and that Shakespeare didn’t actually write the works attributed to him? This Shakespeare conspiracy theory began almost two centuries ago and was recently inflamed by the production of Anonymous, which portrays Shakespeare as a semi-literate, scarcely talented minor actor paid by the genius de Vere, Earl of Oxford, to pass the plays off as his own, as it would have been impossible for a member of the aristocracy to be a playwright in Elizabethan and Jacobean England.
