Shakespeare’s grave in Holy Trinity church, Stratford-on-Avon

Someone has stolen William Shakespeare’s head.

This is the report from the first-ever archaeological investigation of William’s grave at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-Upon-Avon. “It’s very very convincing to me that his skull isn’t at Holy Trinity at all,” says Kevin Colis who led he investigation.
