£10 Million Magna Carta found Hidden in Scrapbook

An edition of the Magna Carta which could be worth up to £10 million ($15.26 million US dollars) has been found after it lay forgotten in a council’s archives.

The discovery of the version of the historical parchment which established the principle of the rule of law, in the files of the history department of Kent County Council, has been described as an important historical find by an expert. The discovery was made by archivist Dr Mark Bateson at the end of December just before the 800th anniversary year celebrations of King John’s concession.

Details may be found in an article in the ITV News at http://goo.gl/ttqdkN.

Only £10 million? I imagine it should be worth quite a bit more!
