Archaeologists have found a 'bird whistle' at the site of Shakespeare's Curtain Theater which would have been used for sound effects on 16th Century performances of Romeo and Juliet.

The whistle was found during excavation works at the site of the old theatre which was discovered in 2007 behind a pub undergoing regeneration works.

Archaeologists have also found personal items such as an animal bone com during the dig.
