Sir Robert Worcester interview - Magna Carta

Wednesday 18 June 2014

Sir Robert Worcester, Chair of the Magna Carta 2015 800th Anniversary Commemoration Committee and Deputy Chairman of the Magna Carta Trust, talked to the IBA's Rebecca Lowe about the history and legacy of 'England's most important export' and the events to be held to commemorate its 800th anniversary in 2015.

Magna Carta was one of the first documents imposed upon a King of England by a group of his subjects, the feudal barons, in an attempt to limit his powers by law and protect their rights.

The charter is widely known throughout the English speaking world as an important part of the protracted historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law in England and beyond.
