The Magna Carta Project

IV. A cartulary of Canterbury cathedral priory: BL Galba E iii, fos.72v-80.

by Professor David Carpenter

This copy of the Charter is in another Canterbury Cathedral Register, which forms part of the later compilation known as Galba E iii. The copy was probably made between 1273 and 1278. Like III, above, I suspect it was made from Ci but there is not the same degree of proof.1
