Durham Cathedral will display its three issues of Magna Carta for the first time ever, alongside the Forest Charters.

The documents are recognised as some of the most important in history. They helped established the law, give commoners protection against the King- and access to land, for farming.

The multi-million pound National Lottery funded exhibition is a world first as the Magna Carta and the Forest Charters are displayed together for the first time in order to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the first Forest Charter.
