800 Years of the Magna Carta

(YouTube link)

The Magna Carta turns 800 years old this summer. The British Library thinks we should all learn a little more about that document on this auspicious occasion. That’s why they’ve given us two beautifully illustrated videos on it, narrated by Terry Jones of Monty Python. The Magna Carta itself didn’t change life much for everyday people, but it started England -and the world- on the path from absolute monarchy to the rule of law. It eventually led to the idea and the ideal of democracy. The second video in the series explains how that happened.
