The Magna Carta Project

II. A late thirteenth, early fourteenth-century statute book: Cambridge University Library Ee. 2. 19, fos.1-5.

by Professor David Carpenter

Very unusually for a 1215 Charter, the chapters are numbered in Roman numerals in the margin, although only down to chapter 33. This is its chapter 19. The text has nearly all the variations noted in I, above.

In the dating clause, the regnal year is correctly given as seventeen.
