Magna Carta Arrives in Canada

A copy of the Magna Carta arrived last week in Ottawa as part of a tour marking the 800th anniversary of the famous document.

It is on display until July 26 at the Canadian Museum of History.

Earlier Library Boy posts about the Magna Carta include:
  • Magna Carta to Tour Canada in its 800th Anniversary Year (January 29, 2015): "The Magna Carta, along with its companion document from 1217 known as the Charter of the Forest, will be exhibited in Ottawa/Gatineau at the Canadian Museum of History from June 11 to July 26, 2015, before making stops in Winnipeg, Toronto and Edmonton."
  • Speech by UK Supreme Court Justice Lord Sumption on 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta (March 14, 2015): "The speech looks at the origins of the  document and at how it has perceived by lawyers and historians over the centuries."
  • British Library Exhibition on 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta (April 11, 2015): "The British Library's Medieval Manuscripts Blog has an article on Pictures At An Exhibition that describes some of the prints, drawings and paintings that present the Magna Carta in its historical context. The items come from the British Museum; the Victoria and Albert Museum; the National Portrait Gallery; HM The Queen and the Royal Collection, Windsor; the Palace of Westminster; the Bodleian Library, Oxford; and the Musée Carnavalet, Paris."
