The Magna Carta Legacy

In 2015, Royal Holloway, University of London was a key partner in celebrating the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. Being only two miles from the site of the signing, we hosted festivals and workshops and our academics have been key players in reaching out to the public more about the importance of this historic signing and its relevance to our laws today.

We are ambitious and want to continue this work and have employed a Magna Carta Legacy Project Manager to continue the outreach work, combining legal, archive and historical study with school partnerships to embed this learning into the national curriculum and the national museums network.We have been very successful in securing funding for this project thus far, with £485,000 in Heritage Lottery Funding to cover 55% of the total project costs over three years. The College is supporting much of the remaining staff and soft costs such as project management and venue hire to make the project viable.

Our goal now is to take this project to the next level, with a programme of five paid internships over the next ten years which will enrich the experience of the events, increase employability and provide skilled interns in small, local museums and libraries around England
