The face of the bard

I don’t usually post links on the podcast website, but today is different. Today it was revealed that in all likelihood this is the face of the bard. Apparently this is the only known image of Will painted during his lifetime. He would be about 47 and look- he has hair! This is likely to be the image that all the other later images of the bard were copied from.

Somehow I think this is the face Sive fell in love with.

Also in the story you will see that they have uncovered the site of the Theatre (it’s actually called that) where Will would have trod the boards.

Two exciting Shakespeare discoveries in one day! Read the whole article and throw away that dusty image of the older Will.
