At the sign of the round table, May 18, 2017

The round table would be none other than King Arthur’s of course, which–who knows?–probably never existed, but this sign is based on a reproduction of the legendary original designed by Edward I around 1290 in honor of the betrothal of one of his daughters. It’s known as the Winchester Round Table, and you can read more about it here.
