Magna Carta what? English charter 'a mystery to 45pc of population'





Nearly half of the UK population does not know what the Magna Carta is, according to a YouGov poll.

The survey commissioned by the British Library found 45 per cent of the 2,000 people questioned had no knowledge of the English charter.

And only 32 per cent knew that it set written limits on the authority of the monarch.
