A copy of the Magna Carta, one of only four remaining original copies from 1215, will be coming all the way from Linconshire, England, to the US this year—making stops at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts; and the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The loan is part of a tour leading up to the seminal document’s 800th anniversary.
