    At the beginning of Henry V Shakespeare asked his audience to 'Piece out our imperfections with your thoughts': but what mental world did the Elizabethans draw on to fill out the 'vasty fields of France', Cleopatra's barge or Julius Caesar's forum? In this book, Neil MacGregor attempts to revisit the world of Elizabethan experience through discussions of objects including a communion cup, a rapier, a pedlar's trunk and a holy relic - travelling 'through the charisma of things, to a past world'.
