William Shakespeare's Diary: 26/08/1573

Delve into the life of a young Shakespeare in this imagined journal entry written by the team at Mary Arden's Farm

Cauldron at MAF

Good day to you all.

For the past few days I have noticed strange people on our land. They have been moving things into mother's house; it looks terribly suspicious. So today, I waited until everyone had gone so I could investigate.

What I found was very alarming.  There I found not one, but TWO cauldrons.

Is someone practising witch-craft? I should warn the maids for I do not want my dinner to be cursed.

I shall see thee anon.

William Shakespeare, Aged 9
