1,000 years of rights

9th May 2003 at 01:00
The National Archives (formerly the Public Record Office) which keeps the Domesday Book and Magna Carta is showcasing these treasures on a new website devoted to our civil rights over a millennium, called Citizenship: A History of People, Rights and Power in Britain. Aimed at learners and teachers, it charts the growth of civil rights in Britain with lots of historical examples, such as the death warrant for Charles I, and Ted Heath taking the UK into the European Economic Community. There are also quizzes for pupils and adult learners.
