There was a great media coverage of this event. (-1- , -2- , -3-, -4- , -5-) Since it is a sacriledge to question William of Stratford as the author of "Hamlet" researchers at once had to dig out a longstanding (forgotten?) old myth that grave robbers stole Shakespeare's skull in 1794.
Why on earth the public media is following the establishment (Britains Tourist industry and "Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust) which have to take the identity between William Shakspere(Stratford) and William Shakespeare ( the author of the Plays) for granted? Why they didn't at least discuss the possibility that the findings could have someting to do with the real authorship controversy (conspiracy!)
