Welcome to Hamlet on the Ramparts, a public website designed and maintained by the MIT Shakespeare Project in collaboration with the Folger Shakespeare Library and other institutions. We aim to provide free access to an evolving collection of texts, images, and film relevant to Hamletís first encounter with the Ghost (Act 1, Scenes 4 and 5).

To make the site more useful in the classroom, we include commentary and guides to all materials and detailed lesson plans written by expert teachers from around the country.

Shakespearean TheatreThis site was selected as one of the best educational resources on the Web by StudySphere in 2006.
