There are few ideas that have stood stronger against the test of time than Magna Carta, the 800 year old document that has pretty much bolstered all Western perspective on humanitarian law. To celebrate the reunion of the two original pieces of parchment at the British Museum has created some animations detailing the profound effect the text had on our history. Voiced by Monty Python’s Terry Jones and full of fantastic fact.
