'Taking Liberties' at the British Library

There's a fascinating exhibition at the British Library revealing Britain's "1,000-year struggle for our freedoms and rights."

'Taking Liberties': British Library

A tour of historic struggles for freedom, there's over 200 iconic documents and objects on display including the well known - like the Magna Carta of 1215, and the 1649 death warrant of King Charles I - and lesser known documents like the hand-written minutes of the Putney debates, recording  the arguments between Cromwell's New Model Army and the radical Levellers.
