800 candles

In exactly two weeks will be the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta. The British Library has pulled out all the stops in its commemoration of the event, including a diverse and extensive online exhibit. For your enjoyment and edification we feature two videos from the exhibit, narrated by none other than Monty Python's Terry Jones. Watch for King John's coffee mug.

What is Magna Carta?
