Eagle Falconry - A Personal Perspective NEW!!!
 
Eagle Falconry - A Personal Perspective by Dr. David Glynne Fox
 
Forward: Takes the reader on an historical journey into the not too distant past, for Eagle Falconry is relatively new to Europe and especially the United Kingdom. The appearance of this work is timely because only a mere handful of the earlier devotees still survive and it is due to these individuals that much of the work contained herein has been extracted and therefore not lost to prosperity and falconry history.
 
Prior to this work being published, almost nothing had appeared in print, so the bulk of this work will be new to its readership and in the same vein, information on the training and management of these powerful raptors has also been sadly lacking. With this in mind, it is believed that the contents will be of great interest to falconers, historians and raptor enthusiasts alike.

HISTORICAL FALCONRY
 
HISTORICAL FALCONRY
An illustrated Guide

Helen Stewart & Andrew Stewart

Falconry was a major part of historical culture and lifestyle across the world and throughout history. The origins of falconry are set in the Far and Middle East, as early nations developed and the flying and training of birds of prey began to be seen as an art form, as well as a method of hunting.

As east met west, during the expansion of the Roman Empire, we see the first archaeological evidence for Western European individuals practicing this most ancient art. Thus our first known evidence of falconry in Britain arrives with the Romans, and perhaps this most important and integral part of our cultural heritage became instituted in British history. From Late Antiquity, through to the Elizabethan age, falconry grew in popularity, only declining in interest in the late 1600s due to the evolution of firearms.

This book seeks to explore the world of historical falconry, from the individuals who flew the birds and the birds themselves, to the historical techniques, skills, and equipment used by the falconers, and the way in which falconry was entirely interwoven with all the different aspects of historical culture and lifestyle."
