Faversham's rarely displayed 1300 Magna Carta has gone on show in the town today (Saturday).
As part of a countywide tour, the Magna Carta Rediscovered exhibition celebrates 800 years since the sealing of the charter.
Interactive displays line the walls of the Alexander Centre in Preston Street to explore the importance of Magna Carta and a selection of other charters will also be on show.
But the centrepiece for this major exhibition is the 1300 Magna Carta itself, rarely displayed in public.
To celebrate its significance, the next month will see a number of Magna Carta-themed events in Faversham, including art exhibitions, a series of lectures and a gala concert.
On June 13 and June 14, there will be a whole weekend devoted to Magna Carta, with music, entertainment, re-enactment, arts, hands-on activities, town tours, stalls, food and drink and plenty of medieval atmosphere.
The exhibition opens every day from 10am until 4pm, with late openings on Thursdays until 7.30pm.
The project is being staged with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Magna Carta 800, Faversham Town Council, The Alexander Centre Trust and Swale Borough Council.
The exhibition runs until June 28 in Faversham and then moves on to The Beaney in Canterbury, The Kent History and Library Centre in Maidstone, The Maison Dieu in Dover, The Guildhall in Sandwich and Rochester Cathedral.
