The second of two true enquiries.

The Message in the Marble Since its erection in February 1741, the celebrated monument to Shakespeare in Westminster Abbey's Poets' Corner has kept a little-known secret.

Prospero's lines from The Tempest, carved on the marble scroll, are wrong. Not just a slip of the chisel, but deliberately misquoted and rearranged. On the monument's 250th anniversary, investigators Thomas Bokenham and Richard Barker think they know why the Bard was butchered.

The second of two true investigations.

The Message in the Marble Since its erection in 174 1, the monument to

William Shakespeare in Westminster Abbey has kept a little-known secret in Poets' Corner. Lines from The Tempest, inscribed on its marble scroll, were seemingly deliberately misspelt, misquoted and rearranged. Why? In the monument's

250th year, it's time to ask who butchered the Bard.
