We all know of the reconstructed Globe Theatre, but many visitors interested in Elizabethan London may not be aware that they can visit the site of the remains of The Rose Theatre. Competitors in their heyday, the re-imagined Globe owes much to the excavation of the Rose and seeing the ruins of the Rose adds to appreciation of the re-constructed Globe. The Rose site was discovered in 1989 and has been preserved to allow public access, performances and, eventually full excavation and study. We did not have time to see a performance, but did have a fascinating tour of the ruins, and look forward to a future visit to see what progress is made in the excavation.
