As you probably have heard this year marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death and to mark the occasion, researchers are planning on conducting a 'radar survey' of the great bard's grave.

The survey will allow researchers to investigate Shakespeare's grave at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford On Avon without excavating the site which famously includes a warning against anyone who 'moves my bones.'

Many believe that there is a family vault hidden beneath the grave and that Shakespeare has been buried with items which may give an insight into his life.

Results from the scan are expected to be revealed in a few weeks.
