Canberra – Magna Carta

books n places

The fact that this year is the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta was brought to our attention by a fellow blogger who has reviewed the Magna Carta exhibition currently on display at the British Library in London.

There is a memorial beside the Thames at Runnymede where the signing of the important document took place. Not many people know though that Australia also has a Magna Carta memorial. It was a gift from the British Government for Australia’s Centenary of Federation and can be seen in Canberra, the national capital. A self-guided walk that commences at Old Parliament House and includes the Magna Carta monument can be downloaded here.
