Kings Knot

This is the Kings Knot below Stirling Castle in Scotland. An earthwork that has taken on different forms and has been written about as far back as 1375 by the Scot poet John Barbour. Its present form is said to date to around 1620 when renovations were made for Charles I. Locals refer to it as the cup and saucer but legend refers to this as the sight of King Arthurs round table. Recent research concludes that the mound in the center is built over a circular wooden structure that is considerably older. Let round table speculation begin anew.
