Gordon McMullan - Building the Globe

The KCL Professor discusses a document detailing of a legal debacle between Shakespeare's colleague Richard Burbage and his landlord, which led to the dismantling of the Theatre and the construction of the Globe playhouse from its timbers. Prof McMullan's work has been a collaborative effort with the National Archives for the By Me William Shakespeare exhibition at King's College London.
