Rare King John royal charter found in Library

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A rare original royal charter from the first year of King John's reign has been discovered in Durham.

The document carries the seal of John, who reigned from 1199 until 1216, and was issued in York on 26 March 1200 - exactly 819 years ago.

It was found in the archives of Ushaw College Library, which is managed by Durham University.

Fewer than a dozen original charters have survived from the first year of King John's reign.
