Many falconers have personal collections of artefacts collected over years of dedication to our sport. These may be ancient or more recent items of falconry furniture, books, photographs or correspondence from falconers. Don't forget that even recent items linked to well known modern falconers will, at some point in the future, be of historical interest to someone. If you have material that you think has value as a piece of our cultural heritage, there are a number of options for making it accessible to the wider falconry community.

You may:

  • Donate the original item as a gift without charge or leave it as a legacy to the FHT
  • Sell the original to the FHT
  • Loan the original item physically to the FHT whilst retaining legal ownership
  • Donate an archive copy. The FHT is permitted to display images or information about the item but you retain ownership and all copyrights
  • Retain ownership of the item, allowing the FHT to have copyright of it to raise funds and to display it on the archive

If you are considering donating an item or have any queries, please contact us to discuss it further.

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 features 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.
