Magna Carta in British History: Memory, Inventions and Forgetting

Event Details

17th June, 2014
Windsor Building Auditorium, Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, Surrey, TW20 0EX

2015 will witness celebrations of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Yet how this iconic text has been understood, used and commemorated has changed markedly over the centuries. This lecture explores some of these shifts over time, and discusses how – and how far – the cult that evolved around this text can be related to the UK’s lack of a written constitution.

This is the 10th lecture in the series, hosted by Royal Holloway and run in association with the Magna Carta Trust. The last lecture in the series will be in 2015.

All welcome. The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Windsor Building Foyer.
