For the first time ever, archaeologists have investigated William Shakespeare's grave at England's Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon. And they've discovered something important might be missing: his skull.
The full story will be shown Saturday on Great Britain's Channel 4 in a documentary called "Secret History: Shakespeare's Tomb."
But the research team's leader said there was an "odd disturbance at the head end. ... It's very very convincing to me that his skull isn't at Holy Trinity at all."
