The Rose Theatre remains were discovered in 1989. This is where Shakespeare was thought to have learned his craft. Sir Ian McKellen (pick your movie -- he was Gandalf in Lord of the Rings, but also Magneto in X-Men) is one of the major supporters saying that he does not want it restored. "The point," he says, "is that these remains are the genuine thing. We don't want to start covering them up."
