To be, or not to be...the question is: Is this Shakespeare?

William Shakespeare is, arguably, the most well-known name in literature. With such a legendary reputation, it's hard to believe there are disputes among scholars about which painted portrait of him is his real likeness.

There are many copies of his face stippled onto canvas, but though they may be labeled as photos of the man, they all have differences.   Nick Glass speaks to Shakespearean experts who are still unsure about what William Shakespeare looked like.

      Bonjour,Merci pour vos reruots et vos encouragements@Bassin d'Arcachon, en effet votre application est passee a travers les mailles du filet, mais des oublis etait inevitables. Vos remarques nous ont d'ailleurs deja permis d'identifier ces applications manquantes qui seront rajoutee a notre etude :- Bassin d'Arcachon,- Ma cote Basque,- Isere Tourisme,- Vercors,- Pyrenees Orientale,- Charente-Maritime,- Var en fete@Jean-Luc Boulin: merci pour votre remarque tout a fait pertinente sur le raccourcis que nous avons fait concernant le nombre de structure. Une solution pour tenter d'illustrer ces rassemblement serez d'associer a chaque application un territoire couvert et de pouvoir avoir une cartographie du territoire tres couvert, peu couvert et non couvert toutefois cette information est loin d'etre facile a collecter. A tudier donc

    Voting may yield a consensus, but a better way is to approach this scientifically.
