The fourth and final part of Shakespeare City tells the story of his legacy, and the men who worked to bring his plays to the masses, thus kickstarting the Shakespearean revolution. We also make a quick stop at Blackfriars to check on his property portfolio...

Part two of Shakespeare City takes in sites that influenced the Bard's work around the city. London Stone and the Boar's Head Tavern held a particularly strong sway for Shakespeare, but millions of people walk past their locations everyday without realising their significance.
Huge thanks to everyone who was part of the Museums and Class study day, to @jon_sleigh @DrDaveOBrien @SharanwithanA @BCLivingMuseum for leading the workshop sessions, and @MuseumofLondon for hosting. Hope all those who stayed on afterwards enjoyed the bonus micro tour!

It's #LingerieDay (apparently) so here's a Roman bikini, recovered from a backfilled Roman well in Queen Victoria Street, London. These likely belonged to an acrobat or performer, but may have been worn as everyday under-clothing or as a sanitary garment.

Embark on a four-part journey with us across William Shakespeare's London. The Bard's footsteps can still be felt right across the capital, and in this episode, we examine where it was he lodged during his time in the city, taking in sites at the Barbican and Great St. Helen's.
