In February 2016, Kevin Colls, Archaeological Project Manager for the Centre of Archaeology was invited to give a lecture at the prestigious Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC. The presentation entitled ‘New Place Revealed: The Archaeology of Shakespeare’s Family Home’ proved to be a great success. An audience of over one hundred Shakespearean scholars and members of the Folger heard about the latest research on the site of New Place. This talk was also followed by presentations at the National Women’s Institute (DC) and the American Shakespeare Centre (Staunton, Virginia). The full results of the research at New Place will be published in July 2016 as a book entitled ‘Finding Shakespeare’s New Place: An Archaeological Biography’ by Manchester University Press.
