Magna Cartas

Yes, plural-4 of the extant copies of the Magna Carta are reunited in an exhibit at the British LIbrary in hohnor of the 800th anniversary of this important document. It is a pillar of parliamentary democracy. Even King John was no longer above the law after he and the nobles  attached their seals to the document. 250 copies were created and distributed. 17 copies still exist. Happy 800th birthday Magna Cartas! Cool images and video here http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jan/31/fire-russian-library-moscow-institute?CMP=share_btn_link
