Laws on vellum - level 1
In the UK, people write their laws on vellum. Vellum is made from animal skin. Some people do not like this. They say that paper is enough. Paper is also cheaper.
However, vellum can last for 5,000 years. Laws are important. Maybe, they should be on something special.
There is a law. It is 801 years old. It is called the Magna Carta. The UK still has it. It is so old that it costs 6 pounds a century to make.
Difficult words: law (an important document, a document which says what people can or cannot do), last (to exist), should (if something should be, it is good that it is), century (100 years).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
