Magna Carta goes on display

Historical document The Magna Carta has gone on display in St Albans Cathedral in the UK, 800 years after the legal document was first written. Considered one of the founding documents of western constitutional law, the Magna Carta was written in 1215 when King John was pressured into limiting his powers and protecting other citizens’ rights by feudal barons.
