The idea of communal meals originated in Europe in the Middle Ages. During this time evening meals were grand affairs that took place in great halls. Such events were mainly for the aristocracy and upper class of the time, with the lower classes very much at the fringes. It was also a time when people did not eat from plates, instead the food was served on top of a piece of bread called a trencher.
Material: Another thing to consider is what is the dining table to be made of? Glass topped tables are very attractive, wood is durable, wrought iron can also be an option but is not always practical. If you like glass topped tables but are afraid of wear and tear, you can opt for a table pad that will protect the table from heat, humidity, stains, spills and scratches. Custom table pads are available for any kind of dining table.
The social class structure was reflected in the seating arrangement at these large meal time gatherings. Diners sat on benches around long trestle tables. The host family sat raised above the others, at the centre of the dining room. Less important gentry were lower and sat further away from the head of the table depending on their role in life.
