You are going to read an article about what archaeologists have found out about William Shakespeare’s grave with the help of laser scanning technology. Some words are missing from the text. Your task is to write the missing words on the dotted lines (8-15) after the text. Use only one word in each gap. There is an example (0) at the beginning.


More than 250 years after Shakespeare’s death, a story began to circulate that his skull had
(0) ___been____ stolen from his grave in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon by trophy
hunters. For more than a century the tale (8)   widely dismissed as a myth, but now, on
the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, archaeologists believe they have found evidence
(9)   support the claims.
Using ground-penetrating radar to scan the grave reputed to (10)   Shakespeare’s, they
have discovered that the skull is apparently absent from the rest of the skeleton. They also
established that a skull in a church in Beoley, 20 miles away, (11)   according to local
legend belonged to the playwright, was in fact that (12)   a 77-year-old woman. This
means, they said, that Shakespeare’s skull could still be at large somewhere.
Shakespeare’s grave is not marked with his name, but is covered (13)   a stone inscribed
with a curse to ward off anyone planning to move the remains. With the developments of radar
and geophysical techniques, the archaeologists realised they could answer many questions
about what’s beneath those stones (14)   having to dig them up. The scan showed
evidence of a “mysterious and significant repair” to the head end of the grave, giving credence
to a story published in Argosy magazine in 1879. According to this, a group of trophy hunters
(15)   lifted the stone, dug up the grave and stolen Shakespeare’s skull. The technology
shows half of the grave has not been disturbed. It means Shakespeare’s remains are there.  
You are going to read an article about the history of Speakersˈ Corner in Hyde Park, London. Some words are missing from the text. • Use the words in brackets to form the words that fit in the gaps (16-24).  Then write the appropriate form of these words on the dotted lines after the text. There might be cases when you do not have to change the word in brackets. Use only one word for each gap. There is an example (0) at the beginning. 


Speakers' Corner has been a traditional site for public (0) ___speeches___ (speak) and debates since
the mid 1800's. Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, George Orwell and other (16)   (stand)
figures were known to often use the area to demonstrate free speech. Even today, on a Sunday
morning, it's not (17)   (usual) to find crowds gathering at Speakers' Corner to listen to
enthusiasts expounding their views. Anyone can turn up to speak on any subject, as long as the
police consider their speeches (18)   (law).
Close to this spot, about 250 years ago, people were still being hanged at the infamous Tyburn
Gallows. Everyone condemned to die at Tyburn could make a final speech. Some confessed,
others emphasized their (19)   (innocent). For onlookers, the executions were big social
events. Eventually, the authorities decided the (20)   (hang) were too violent and
transferred them to Newgate Prison.
The origins of Speakers' Corner as it is known today go back to 1866, when a meeting of the
Reform League demanding the (21)   (extend) of the right to vote was suppressed by
the Government. Marches and protests had long started or terminated their routes at Speakers'
Corner. Finding the park (22)   (lock), demonstrators tore up hundreds of yards of
railings to gain access, and three days of rioting followed. The next year, when a crowd of
150,000 refused to obey another government (23)   (ban) and marched to Hyde Park,
police and troops did not intervene. The Home Secretary resigned the next day. In the 1872
Parks Regulation Act, through a series of regulations (24)   (govern) the conduct of
meetings, the right to meet and speak freely in Hyde Park was established.
