British Library Exhibition on 900 Years of Struggle for Rights and Freedoms

The British Library has a new exhibition called Taking Liberties: the struggle for Britain's freedoms and rights.

It takes a look at the people, events and documents that played a major role in the 900-year history of the rise and consolidation of rights and freedoms in the British Isles and by extension throughout the former British Empire/Commonwealth.

The exhibition in the real world begins tomorrow, but there is also a major virtual world show with Facebook applications, news stories about the exhibition itself, videos, a curator's blog and "key icons" such as images and background on the Magna Carta, the 1689 Bill of Rights, the Rights of Man by Thomas Paine from 1791 and the 1942 Beveridge Report.
