Tony Robinson

TV walker and historian Tony Robinson will be returning to Windsor Castle for a talk about Edward III lost 'House of Chivalry' with historian Dr Jonathan Foyle.

If you've ever seen his Time Team episode when he dug up the lawn then you'll have a head-start on this, but legend suggests that Edward once built a large circular hall for his Knights of the Round Table.

Historians have long dismissed this as an Arthurian dream, but the discovery of the building's foundations proved that work was definitely started.

What would it have looked like, and what part would it have played in Edward's culture of chivalry?
