This is just a fictious example to check my understanding.

If I was to find the "never been published before" Magna Carta - addendum. Written approximately 650 years ago. Then even though it's 650 years old, I as the first ever publisher would would have 30 years of copyright assigned to me.

Is this correct?

Hi fabben,
Sort of. Firstly, it is only 25 years, and it is known as publication right, not copyright, although the rights involved are very similar to copyright. You can read up on this in the Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 1996 (SI 1996/2967), Regulations 16 and 17.
What's more, this would only be legal if it was done with the permission of the owner of the physical doument, and presuming that Crown Copyright did not apply.
