To many of us here in the States, John Drakakis's interesting details
about the Globe project are not widely known.  I'd be interested in
hearing more about how the project is being received by both academics
and the general public in Great Britain.  *IS* worthwhile information
being recovered?  Are Britons generally receptive to the cost of
recovering/reproducing what is there?  Would the whole thing have been
better off left buried?
 
Personally, I admire Dr. Drakakis's vitriol, but I can't help but
think there must be *something* to be learned from recovering the
thing itself.

Considering the number of high-rise office buildings being built in the area,
it strikes me as highly unlikely that the dustmen's lot would have remained
inviolate even without the theatre project.
 
It also seems likely that the local economy will benefit from the influx of
tourists into the neighborhood.
