What is Round Table?

1 Answer
A round table is a table that excludes a head and has no sides. With the absence of a head position, round tables create a space of equality. Round tables were popularized by King Aurthur and his knights in 1155. The king wanted to ensure that none of his knights, when seated at table, could claim precedence over the others.
