    At least as late as the 1970s the English Statutes in Force had Magna Carta
    in abbreviated Latin with English translation. It dates from 1297. Quite a
    lot of it has survived. Much of the sections about the liberties of the
    forest have been repealed because you can't go around killing wildlife in
    forests these days.
