King Arthur's Round Table Book

King Arthur's Round Table Book

Martin Biddle's definitive hard-back edition of King Arthur's Round Table.

This magnificent book, the work of eighteen authors with Martin Biddle at the helm … Beyond the Table’s intrinsic interest, the book is an extraordinary tour de force of archaeological, scientific, art-historical and historical collaboration. … What in other hands would have been merely a technical report is made a window on a lost visual world.

The vast wooden disk known as King Arthur’s Round Table has hung on the wall of the great Hall of Winchester Castle for six hundred years. But what is it? Was it ever a table? When was it made? Why is it hanging on the wall? When was it painted with the famous image it now bears? And why at Winchester?

In 1976 the Round Table was taken down from the wall and thoroughly examined by a team of historians and scientists assembled by Martin Biddle, and its history began to emerge.
