We can’t let June 15, 2015, go by without noting that it is the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. Want to know more? You’re in luck! No anniversary of significance (faux or otherwise) passes these days without a comprehensive website devoted to the event. Short of time? The New York Times offers a more succinct discussion (with a bonus pop quiz!). Or check out historian Jill Lepore’s very interesting essay about Magna Carta’s “unusual legacy in the United States.” (Not that it didn’t have an unusual legacy in Britain, as evidenced by Horace Rumpole’s reliance on the Great Charter to defend his right to the comfort of an occassional cheroot.) Happy anniversary, Magna Carta!
