"In the garden of the villa stands a sculpture often called the Falconer. It decipts a falcon with some of the features of an eagle, tamed by a hunter of 'nordic' physiognomy. The falconer's dagger in the style of a Roman showt sword was the standard symbol of the SS and von Tschammer und Osten also carried a dagger of this kind."

About Us

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.
