The England of William Shakespeare was not only his birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, nor the place where he spent most of his life writing and performing plays - London, but also the many towns where the distinguished theatrical touring company of the day performed his works, presumably often accompanied by Shakespeare himself; Marlborough, Faversham in Kent, Rye, Dover, Bath, Bristol, Oxford, Coventry, Shrewsbury, Ipswich, Wilton, Barnstaple, to name but a few. All these places are described in relevant detail in the book.
