Shakespeare Documents

As part of a forthcoming exhibition in Somerset House (London) called By Me: William Shakespeare there will be a display of documents associated with Shakespeare’s life including his will and other documents associated with the theatre and legal matters. You can look at closeups of the documents onscreen and try your skill at deciphering early modern handwriting (there are transcripts of the will so you’ll be able to check to see how good you are).
