The Qing dynasty (Chinese: æ¸…æœ; pinyin: QÄ«ng Cháo; Wade–Giles: Ch'ing Ch'ao; IPA: [tÉ•Ê°íÅ‹ tÊ‚Ê°É‘ÌŒÊŠÌ¯]), officially the Great Qing (Chinese: å¤§æ¸…; pinyin: Dà QÄ«ng), also called the Empire of the Great Qing, or the Manchu dynasty, was the last imperial dynasty of China, ruling from 1644 to 1912 with a brief, abortive restoration in 1917. It was preceded by the Ming dynasty and succeeded by the Republic of China. The Qing multi-cultural empire lasted almost three centuries and formed the territorial base for the modern Chinese state.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
