The Road to Runnymede

After years of complaining that while Americans celebrate "Magna Carta", we Brits seem happy to ignore it - there is a host of material now available for reflection on the significance; application - and history of that tremendous document. The BBC is doing us proud with its output. I'm not a great David Starkey fan - but thoroughly enjoyed watching his programme on Magna Carta.

It's worth visiting BBC iPlayer and the "Taking Liberties" website for more information about the feast of materialnow available. My apologies to non-UK readers - but there are some blocks on access to BBC material outside the UK.

There are also some excellent books out. A selection are linked to below
