<br />
Shakespeare experts are celebrating the incredible discovery of the boards the famous Bard trod as he performed in his own play in the 16th century.<br />
<br />
The 600-year-old oak floorboards are believed to be the only surviving stage in the world from William Shakespeare's time.<br />
<br />
They have been uncovered under several layers of more modern flooring at England's oldest and largest medieval guildhall, which is currently undergoing a major refurbishment.
