So, 1600… The Dutch were waging the 80 year war against the Spanish, Scotland adopted January 1st as new years day, the Falkland Islands were first sighted, the East India Company were given royal charter almost signalling the beginning of the British Empire and Shakespeare was debuting A Midsomer Night’s Dream and publishing Merchant of Venice…. Oh, not that 1600?! 1600 page likes, why didn’t you say?!? And only a week after getting to 1500! A Shakespearean welcome to one and all!
