Radar Scans Examine Shakespeare's 'Cursed' Grave

Radar Scans Examine Shakespeare's 'Cursed' Grave

In commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, researchers in England performed radar scans of the legendary playwright's 'cursed' grave.

The project aims to learn more about the family members that Shakespeare was buried alongside as well as any potential objects which may be contained within his grave.

However, if researchers were to find any particularly intriguing items, they may think twice about attempting to retrieve them due to a curse contained on the playwright's gravestone.

"To digg the dust enclosed heare; Bleste be the man that spares thes stones, And curst be he that moves my bones," the marker says.

Presumably a radar scan spares researchers from any supernatural retribution from The Bard, since they technically have not disturbed his remains.

Although the scan has already taken place, results of the endeavor will not be announced until later this year.
