Magna Carta at the Rochester Cathedral until December 6th 2015

The Faversham Magna Carta and Rochester’s medieval document ‘Textus Roffensis’ will be on display together in Rochester Cathedral from 10th October to 6th December 2015.

These important historical documents will be on display in the Lady Chapel as part of the Magna Carta Rediscovered touring Exhibition celebrating the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta.

The Faversham Magna Carta dates from the 1300’s and is predated by Rochester Cathedral’s own Textus Roffensis, a book of Law Codes which includes King Henry I’s Coronation Charter, itself dating from the 1120’s.

Make sure you visit Rochester Cathedral to see these two historic documents together, the only location they will be viewed side by side.
