Shakespeare respoken redux

"The Archeology of Sound"--Shakespeare in the "original pronunciation"

Forgive me if I am skeptical; however, I do regard this original pronunciation as something akin to Piaget's "child's conception of time."  The primary question--how do you know?  If you take "relict" dialects as your guide, how do you know that they have survived unchanged over four hundred years?  I'm skeptical and dubious, but willing to consider the evidence.
