Hawkwood International presents a new, ground-breaking exhibition at the Museum of the Bible
The exhibit is set to open in April 2021 and run through to October 2021. The Magna Carta is widely considered as the inspiration for the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the British Human Rights Act.
In addition to the Magna Carta the exhibit will feature the unique 1215 King’s Writ, the document sent to sheriffs across England immediately after the sealing of the 1215 charter by King John. It is the only surviving copy of this document and the only contemporary document that refers to “Runnymede” as the location of the meeting where King John and the barons agreed to the terms of what became known as Magna Carta.
