Icon of Liberty Under Law Website

Magna Carta is present in todayâs world, well beyond the 13th century and the âreeds at Runnymede,â including in original documents, public art, sculpture, and statuary located in sites around the world.
Magna Carta 800th contributed Â£20,000 to this project as part of the Round 1 project grants. The website is resplendent with stories of events, people, and interactive catalogues of images, text and video.
