Cornwall Branch - Magna Carta Lecture

Magna Carta and its Role in English History

Published 24th February 2017

The lecture will be given by Nigel Saul, Emeritus Professor of Medieval History, Royal Holloway, University of London

The talk will trace the early history of Magna Carta, showing both how it was created in John's reign and how it was extinguished and then resurrected under Henry III, before going on to consider the Charter's later history and examining the paradox that it provided the world's first written constitution in a country that now prides itself on having no written constitution.

It will take place on Wednesday 22 March at 6.o0 pm at the Penryn/Tremough Campus of the University of Exeter, Peter Lanyon Building, Lecture Theatre 4. 

Parking: There is plenty of car parking. Enter the campus and the signage should point you in the right direction. Parking is free after 6pm, people need to approach the barriers and they will raise automatically. More information can be found if needed at:
