Dig for Shakespeare - The Finds



See a selection of archaeological finds at Nash's House & New Place.

Seal found at New Place

From 2010 to 2012 we embarked on a groundbreaking and innovative archaeological project at the site of New Place; Shakespeare's final home from 1597 until his death in 1616. The Dig for Shakespeare excavations were undertaken in conjunction with the University of Birmingham and a group of volunteers.

Some of our most exciting finds are now on display in an exhibition at Nash's House, which stands next door to the site and was home to Shakespeare's granddaughter Elizabeth.
