The Ankerwycke Yew, Living Witness to the Magna Carta by Janis Fry with research by A.Meredith
This fascinating 20 page colour booklet tells the story of the Ankerwycke Yew at Runnymede and presents the evidence for the tree having been the site of the agreement of the Magna Carta by King John and the barons in 1215. This Yew, believed to be over 2,000 years old, may have been planted by the Egyptians on what was once an island in the River Thames, perhaps to honour a river they would have deemed sacred like the Nile. Runnymede was a special meeting place long before the Magna Carta or the Norman Conquest, and was most probably the site of the inaugurations of Saxon Kings beneath the Yew which would have bestowed powers of divinity and kingship.
