near the agricultural village of Grantham, Harlaxton was
once the residence of minor nobility, but currently the
estate houses many American students each year who dwell
at the manor house and take classes during the summer.
During my last summer of graduate research for the MA
degree, their staff kindly allowed me to stay there in
an occupied room while undergraduate students were taking
courses on Shakespeare and Pre-Raphaelite art. I commuted
each day from Harlaxton to the British Museum in London
(about one hour and ten minutes by Brit-rail train). To

history at http://www.ueharlax.ac.uk/harlaxton/briefj.htm.
