Mary Queen of Scots warrant will remain in England

A copy of the warrant calling for the execution of Mary Queen of Scots will remain in England thanks to donations and a law hoping to keep important documents in the country. The warrant had been scheduled to be sold to a private buyer and taken overseas.

The original warrant for Mary's death was lost, but a period copy remained and will now reside in the Library of the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace. The document was purchased for £72,485
