800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.















Welcome to Runnymede, England. It's June 15th, 1215 and negotiations between unpopular King John & the Barons are tense! By sealing and signing the Magna Carta (the Great Charter of the Liberties) King John reluctantly set in motion powerful laws that changed our lives to this very day.

I set about arranging a scene where characters represent the logo through colours. The Magna Carta stipulated protection for the barons from illegal imprisonment, so despite King John's chuckle at our excited prisoner help is on hand from an unlikely source! 

I guess grumpy King John will have to carry that throne home himself.

I really liked this part of the article, with a nice and interesting topics have helped a lot of people who do not challenge things people should know.. You need more publicize this so many people who know about it are rare for people to know this... Success for you.....!!!
