Magna Carta moves to House of Lords
To mark its 800th anniversary, the four surviving copies of the Magna Carta have gone on display in the House of Lords.
Agreed by King John and his barons at Runnymede in 1215, it is now a global symbol for the rule of law and the struggle for universal enfranchisement.
The four surviving copies of the Magna Carta were brought to Parliament under tight security, having previously been displayed together at the British Library.
