(Chester, England)  --  The discovery of a Christian martyrs shrine inside a Roman amphitheater in Chester, England has historians convinced they have found the original site of the legendary King Arthur's Round Table.  Researchers say the king's Round Table where his knights received his instructions was not a big piece of furniture but a wood and stone structure left over from Roman times.  They say at least a thousand of his followers would gather there to hear King Arthur's requests.

During an excavation a wooden memorial to Christian martyrs and an execution stone were found.  Historians put that discovery with a 6th century monk's writings on King Arthur's life and of a martyrs' shrine to conclude that Chester was the site of the Round Table, the center of the King Arthur's Camelot.
