Magna Carta, the great charter sealed between King John and his rebellious barons in 1215 at Runnymede, listed a series of rights and duties, including that the king was subject to the law. Over its 800 years, the document has been cited as legal precedent and influenced our national Bill of Rights and Constitution. Join us as we present four sessions that explore the history behind the great charter, rights and freedoms in the Middle Ages, and the influence of Magna Carta on our national Bill of Rights and Constitution.
