Possible Shakespearean theater found in London [UK]:
[...] The Theatre's foundations remained in east London, and that's what archaeologists believe they have found.

'The first thing I want to know about it is what the foundations can tell us about the architecture,' Wiggins said. 'How big was it? How does it compare with the Rose? How does it compare with the Globe? How similar are they?'

Wiggins said an understanding of what the theater looked like could help Shakespearean scholars understand more about this period in the playwright's history.

'The size of the theater will have an impact on the way the play is written,' he said.

Other works that would have been performed during the period Shakespeare's company was at The Theatre would have included 'Henry IV,' 'Richard II,' 'King John,' and 'the Merry Wives of Windsor,' Wiggins said.

Lyon said it's unlikely The Theatre's complete foundations will ever be fully excavated, but her team intends to examine them further. Fittingly, a new theater is being built on the site, ensuring the foundations below are protected.
