Welcome to our map of Shakespeare's London, the first online resource detailing the important ways in which the Early Modern city provided a context for William Shakespeare's plays. This site has been produced by undergraduate students working in the English Department at King's College, London. As part of a course on Shakespeare's London, they were each asked to research one of six particular locations in his city, and to produce the web content.
This project was generously funded by an Innovation Grant from the College Teaching and Learning Fund. We would like to express our gratitude to the fund, and to our Graduate Teaching Assistants Sarah Lewis and Jennifer Young, Paul Vetch, Beatriz Caballero and Geoffroy Noel from the Department of Digital Humanities, Professor Josephine McDonagh, Head of the English Department, and all the members of the London Shakespeare Centre.
We hope that it will be useful to other students of Shakespeare and visitors to London. Clicking on any placemark on the Map of London will take you to a list of articles about that particular location.
