Magna Carta in St Albans for 800th Anniversary

A copy of the original Magna Carta is to appear in St Albans for the first time, to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the city’s link with the charter.

A meeting in the city in 1213 ultimately led to the agreement that became the historic document in 1215.

The charter will be displayed in a climate controlled environment at St Albans Cathedral in August.
