Exploring Magna Carta – Free Virtual Talks

Tuesday 15 June: 5pm-6:45pm

15 June 2021 marks 806 years since Magna Carta was sealed at Runnymede. As part of the Runnymede Explored project, this evening of two free talks offers an introduction to the Magna Carta and what life was like in Surrey at the time. The first talk will be given by Mike Page, the County Archivist of Surrey and is titled ‘Runnymede, Magna Carta and All That’. The talk will consider the background to the events of 1215 and the subsequent history of Magna Carta and will briefly examine the place where it happened, as reflected in records at Surrey History Centre. The second talk will be given by Rob Poulton, Senior Archaeological Advisor at SCAU, and will focus on the Surrey landscape and society in the 13th century.
