Do you remember "making" the Magna Carta for history homework?

I do, it was about 35 shock years ago and I spent hours on it. Lovingly wrote/drew the antiqified lettering, including a coloured first letter of each line, aged the paper by roughing up the edges and browning it with tea, rolled it into a scroll and tied it with red ribbon. I've no idea if any of this was authentic, but I was very pleased with it.

DS1 has had the same homework this week. He's done it on the PC and it took about 10 mins shock sad

And he won't remember making his in 35 years!

No he won't kernowal and I'm not sure what if anything he'll have learned from this homework sad

A lot of my history homework involved tea stains and setting light to the edges for an authentic look!
