Description

The Charter of the Forest: Contexts and Conversations
To mark the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest, the charter that gave Magna Carta its name, Durham Cathedral and Palace Green Library will host a series of talks that explore the historical meaning and relevance of the charter today. The talks will address a range of issues that are at once historical and contemporary: the depletion of the commons and conflicts about natural resources; ideas and practices of citizenship; the relationship between landscape, memory, and identity.

This talk will be given by Dr David Crook, formerly senior archivist at The National Archives. The title of the talk will be: ‘The Charter of the Forest 1217: Its Origins and Implementation, 1170 to 1235’.

This event is free. The talk will begin at 18:30, with tea and coffee served from 18:00.
