    Archaeologists searching for King Arthur's round table have found

    King Arthur's round table may have been
    found by archaeologists in Scotland.

    This is nothing more than a spin (probably by media) on the Arthurian legend. Over the years we've seen similar attempts to solidify legend through media or Hollywood. King Arthur is a romantic creation, same as Robin Hood. Finding a partial object that was once [maybe] circular proves less than nothing.

    Unlikely!

    I seem to remember any connection to King Arthur was thought to be around Wales and the south west...Cornwall. But thinking about it.....what would King Arthur be doing in Scotland?

    He wouldn't be. Cornwall was where all the action was, the seat of Government. It's where Princess Isolde moved-to after leaving Ireland. -And where her bf was booted-out of, clearing the way for her marriage to King Mark. The bf; Tristan, moved-to 'nearby' King Arthur's Court, then over to Brittany, and Queen Iseult.

    Plus, there's at least one legend that links the Thames River flowing-to Camelot.

    There is absolutely no mention of King Arthur or the round table in that video!

    And the article ends up with the theory that it was a garden feature.

    Nice evidence Gary.

    Hmm... i think Robin actually existed.
    Incidentally when are the yanks going to start pronouncing his name right?
    They incorrectly place the emphasis on 'Robin' like this- Robin Hood, instead of correctly emphasising 'Hood' like this- Robin Hood

    I mean, they pronounce Robin Williams properly, so they could do it if they tried..:)

    I'm must be missing how the video and the article are relevant to one another. I enjoyed the vid though. The article, not so much.

CT scans are based on differential attenuation of X-rays as a result of density contrasts within a sample. Advanced microfocus computer tomography (µCT) now permits finer resolutions as low as 2 microns, depending on object size. With µCT technology, it is possible to display any internal detail of a core or plug sample that shows a contrast in mineralogy, density, or porosity.

    At core laboratories?

    How did they do a report in 1979 when they came into existence in 2002?

    Are they time travellers too?

    Core Laboratories was founded back in 1936.

    This whole treasure buried at stone henge is all bullshit isn't it Garry.

    English Heritage have never heard of Garry Denke sr. They have no knowledge of this core you've posted about on over 450 blogs, chat sites and forums over the past 7 years.

    For a famous German scientist, archaeologist and dentist, there is not one mention of him anywhere on the internet but in your posts.

    Provide me with one link to something you haven't posted that corroborates any of your claims.

    Just one.

    Round tables seem to have been common in the Celtic world and Irish stories tell of kings, beside Arthor who had them - this allowed them to have all of their men 'seated at their right hand'. Some were rather like two cresents so that servers could pass into the center. But the idea was that there was more equality between the warriors, the makers of things, and the poets and historians.

    The Norman French preferred square tables where you could place people by their rank. With little nasty tricks like making some people not get any salt at their end of the table, being seated "below the salt". Or even at completely separate tables away from the Lord and the better food.

    And King Arthor seems to have some roots in the Roman settlement at Bath. Bath was a natural hot spring and it allowed Romans to wash up properly. It was one reason for a colony there. The other was tin - in the bronze age, English tin was needed to turn copper into a harder metal for things like swords. It was an important source of Roman war materials.

    Washing was not popular in the Middle Ages until Elizabeth the Great dragged her court off to Bath, so she did not have to feel so faint when she was surrounded by her courtiers on a warm summers day. Unlike earlier folks ,she did not agree that lice were the 'pearls of the poor'.

    Queen Isebella of Spain is said to have boasted that she only bathed twice in her life, once when she was born and once on her wedding night. She actually bathed 3 times, they washed her at her death.
    Bathing was considereed a Jewish (they had to bathe once a week, before going to church), or a protestant thing, that could get you in trouble with the inqusition.
