Sir Robert Worcester and Anthony Musson discuss the Magna Carta, a document widely regarded as a potent symbol of the freedom of the individual. In exploring the Charter’s genesis, and its enduring importance through subsequent centuries across the globe, they debate whether it is the foundation of democracy and if King John’s bargain with his barons is still relevant today. Antony Musson demonstrates with illustrations how images from statutes to illuminated manuscripts provide an insight into the Charter’s political and legal influence.

 Sir Robert Worcester, KBE, DL, chair of the Magna Carta 2015 800th Anniversary Commemoration Committee, was educated at the University of Kansas. Among many other appointments he was Chancellor of the University of Kent (2007-14).
He is an Honorary Fellow of the LSE and of King’s College London. As founder of MORI, Sir Robert is a well-known figure in British public opinion research. His interest in the Magna Carta began when, as an American, on his first visit to the country of his ancestors, he went to gaze with awe at the British Library copy of the Charter.
 Anthony Musson, FRHS and LL.M from Lancaster University, was educated at, and has a doctorate from, King’s College Cambridge. He is Professor of Legal History, University of Exeter, and Barrister of the Middle Temple. As a leading expert on the Magna Carta, he has contributed to the commemorative volume Magna Carta: The Foundation of Freedom, 1215-2015. Anthony has published extensively in the field of medieval legal history and legal culture. His other work includes contributions to BBC Radio 4’s The Long View and BBC 2/The History Channel’s Emmy award winning Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives, and he has worked with actors from the Elysium Theatre Company as part of the RSC’s (Open Stage) scheme’s project.
