Magna Carta

Magna Carta and London: ancient liberties and free customs

  • 5 February 2015 6-7:15pm

Director of London Metropolitan Archives, Geoff Pick, will be discussing the origins of Magna Carta in 1215, the part London played in its creation and its enduring legacy over the last eight hundred years. Geoff will also talk about the AfL conference he will be organising this year, which will be on the theme of liberty.

The City of London Corporation owns one of the few copies of the Magna Carta in existence today. It forms the centrepiece of their celebrations of the Magna Carta's 800th anniversary this year and is currently on display in the new City of London Heritage Gallery.
