Magna Carta at the State Library

King John signs Magna Carta

Magna Carta at the State Library – a free one-day symposium.

Thank you to Rachel who told us about this interesting event at our branch general meeting today.

While it might be a bit far for us in NSW to see the Magna Carta exhibition which is at present being shown at the British Library, there are also events closer to us commemorating the signing of Magna Carta 800 years ago.  The State Library of New South Wales is holding a one-day symposium on 7 May 2015 to answer the question ‘History’s Most Important Document?’

The symposium will include five eminent speakers who “will explore the historical and contemporary significance of this groundbreaking document”.

The symposium is free.  You can find out more and book online here.
