This week in Country Life we uncover how one man cracked a complex Tudor code to reveal the true face of Shakespeare – the literary discovery of the century.

In this issue we also focus on Mediterranean property, admire the magnificent avian Fisher King, meet the man who brings hand-dived scallops from the Sound of Mull to London restaurants, we put the new Jaguar XE saloon to the test and we learn to cook with new potatoes.
