Niels Hesselbjerg Christensen -"The story of the capture and export of falcons and hawks from the Nordic countries in the Middle Ages".
From the early Middle Ages exported falcons and hawks from the North to the European fyrstehoffers falkonerier.
Here is the story of how the Danish-Norwegian kings sought to control such exports from the Reformation period and up to the time around the Napoleonic wars and how especially the Icelandic and Greenlandic Falcons came in the diplomatic service.

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.
