Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK, is known as the “cradle of the law” because it was here that the barons swore to make King John sign Magna Carta. On 20th November 1214, the Archbishop of Canterbury and 25 barons met here under cover of attending the Feast of St Edmund. One by one, they swore on the great altar that they would make King John agree to the proclamations of King Henry I over 100 years before. This led to King John, reluctantly, signing Magna Carta at Runnymede in 1215.
