Shakespeare's epitaph reads:

Good friend, for Jesus' sake forbear,
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And cursed be he that moves my bones.

To coincide with the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare'’s death, University of Cambridge historian Dr. Helen Castor and a team of archaeologists embark on the first-ever scientific investigation of Shakespeare'’s grave. They seek to discover if there'’s any truth to the rumors that his grave, which carries a curse against any man who ‘moves his bones’, has been tampered with. The investigation also explores a Victorian story that Shakespeare'’s skull was stolen by trophy hunters, following a trail that leads to a mystery skull stashed in a crypt beneath a country church. Will removing the church step and taking a 3D scan of the skull confirm if it's a possible match for Shakespeare? Four hundred years after Shakespeare’'s death, this program aims to separate the fact from the folklore surrounding the Bard.
