Book Summary

Magna Carta, the Great Charter, was granted at Runnymede on 15th June 1215 by King John, and has since become one of the most important and celebrated documents in English history. It challenged and limited royal authority for the first time, established the Rule of Law in England and created core principles that are reflected in many constitutional documents around the world today.

Published to mark the 800th anniversary of the charter, Magna Carta and All That reveals the compelling story behind this document, as well as what life was truly like in England in 1215. Looking at how Magna Carta impacted on the people and the customs of the day and the key personalities behind the political power struggle of the time, it also explores the lives of ordinary people, both free men and serfs, in medieval English society.

With fascinating facts and insights, Magna Carta and All That, gives a richly detailed look at the medieval world and the lasting legacy of this crucial document.
