The house where Shakespeare lived

It was the biggest house in Stratford-Upon-Avon more than four hundred years ago and it was owned by William Shakespeare. And now, archaeologists who've excavated ruins of the playwright's family home say their findings could help transform our knowledge of his life. Dr Paul Edmondson is from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
