Europe, United Kingdom, Warwickshire

Harvard House is situated in High Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England; and is owned by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (SBT). It was built in 1596 by Thomas Rogers, grandfather of the benefactor of Harvard University, John Harvard, and was the home of Harvard's mother. Harvard House became the Museum of British Pewter after the donation to the SBT of the Neish Pewter Collection in 1995, and includes items ranging from Roman times to the 1930s, but has a strong core of 16th- and 17th-century pewter.
