It is 800 years ago that the Magna Carta, the “Great Charta” originally drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury has been accepted by King John of England.
Come and see a selection of Magna Carta copies held by the Rare Books and Special Collections at Fisher Library, including a 14th century working copy.
Julie Price, Liaison Librarian of the Rare Books and Special Collections, points out the 14th century copy in the centre of the display as her favourite: “I imagine it being carried on horseback through the English countryside, used to dispense law.”
Now – for one week only– you have the great opportunity to see these old working copies displayed in the Fisher Library.
