One of two beautifully illustrated animations telling the story of Magna Carta, made with the British Library to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Charter’s creation – with the added bonus of being voiced by Monty Python’s Terry Jones!

The animation explores Magna Carta’s 800 year legacy. – See more at: bl.uk/magna-carta/videos/800-years-of-magna-carta#sthash.90rhav3G.dpuf
