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