Immerse yourself in the origins of falconry and discover why Vikings were buried with their Hawks.

Learn about the Saxon Kings who enjoyed the sport, from Ethelbald of Mercia to Edward the Confessor, and find out how the royal sport of falconry was very different from the falconry practised by professional fowlers.
