Archivist David Ferreiro held a press conference to announce the return to public display of a copy of the 1297 version of the Magna Carta after a year of conservation treatments. One of only four known 1297 originals, the document is on permanent loan by its owner David Rubenstein. They unveiled the restored document to the press. Mr. Rubenstein responded to questions about how he came to own a copy of the Magna Carta, the history of the Magna Carta, and how his early work on Capitol Hill as chief counsel to the Senate subcommittee on constitutional amendments influenced his interests.

Video was shown as Kitty Nicholson talked about the conservation process and Jay Brandenburg described the process of encasing the Magna Carta.

Then Marvin Pinkert showed reporters the spot in the rotunda where the document would be displayed and its new interactive exhibit. close
