Human rights did not come into existence in the 20th century! However, the understanding of both human and civil rights has not always been understood in the same way.
Our ancestors in the Middle Ages had a remarkably deep insight into the person and what constituted law and rights. This text provides some of the key documents from Anglo Saxon and medieval law, including the Magna Carta and Coronation Charter, as well as key legal texts from the beginning of the medieval period.
No understanding of rights and justice in the modern world today is possible without first coming to terms with the legal legacy that has been handed down to us over the centuries.
