Some historians believe they have found the location of the Arthurian Round Table. LINK

Hmm. I'm not a historian, but I do doubt the existence of that round table. I do believe Arthur gathered with other lords and such, but this 'round table' is just a literary device created by French fiction writers in the 11th-12th century.

What use is a Round table when it's designed to seat 1000 friggin people? The person opposite to the speaker wouldn't be able to hear anything. Only a mediaeval blob would be visible murmuring some sh*t.

Well, good for them. I wish there were a few pictures.

It might work with a natural or artificial amphitheater. Otherwise I would need to know more about the concept they're selling.

Closed Amphitheatre could work. Imagine the chaos when its lunch time. And must have been cool to watch a show without mobile phones playing Kesha or the OST of mission impossible every two minutes.

Ampitheatre makes more sense. If it was actually a table to seat many, what would the pass the salt etiquette have been like? Pass the dutchie on the left hand side? Supposedly passing to your right is considered more proper. Either way it might take a while to get to you.
