Professor's Classroom

Good morning class. I hope you had a good weekend.

OK today's question involves what some consider one of the most important documents of the civilized world, the Magna Carta. The question is:

The Magna Carta was signed in what year and where? Easy huh? Then who would said this about the document? "TheMagna Carta is a shameful a a demeaning document that was forced on the king by violence and fear."

Oh yeah, a bonus question:

There are 17 copies of the Magna Carta, one is in the US, who owns it and where is it displayed?

Good luck and the clock is ticking.

The Magna Carta was signed June 15, 1215,(by King John) on the plains of Runnymede, not far from where Windsor Castle stands today.

Pope Innocent II declared the document to be "a shameful and demeaning document that was forced upon the king by fear and violence."

~~There is a copy on indefinite loan to the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C.~~
