Magna Carta viewer

Examine Magna Carta in close-up, translate the text as you view, and explore a timeline. The Magna Carta viewer (optimised for screen resolutions of 1024x768) uses the Shockwave plugin, which can be downloaded free from the Adobe website. Also available is a simpler alternative version which does not use Shockwave.

Further information:

There is a third copy in Lincoln Cathedral Archives.

There is a fourth copy in Salisbury Cathedral Chapter House.
