Subject: Sonogram/Ultrasound of Shakespeare's Tomb?
I've been lurking here a few weeks now and am so glad I found this

tomb in Stratford was planned. I never heard a whisper more on the
subject, and it's been eating at me ever since. Does anyone know if
such a thing ever did occur, and if so, were there any published
Apologies for the vagueness of the query, as I no longer recall what the
program was. It was a few years ago that I watched it, perhaps five or

greatly appreciate it!
Thanks to all, in advance.
