Magna Carta originals to be united
The four surviving original copies of Magna Carta will be brought together in 2015 for the first time in history at the British Library.
The event will take place over three days in early 2015 as part of the ongoing commemorations across the UK and the world to mark Magna Carta’s 800th anniversary.
The four original copies are currently held at the British Library (2 copies) and one each at Lincoln and Salsibury Cathedrals. Click here for more information.
