Front Cover - Painting by Mark Upton "Dovre" a captive-bred jerkin owned and trained by Umberto Caproni di Taliedo - Italy. This gyr is probably the first in recorded history to prove excellent at waiting-on and highly successful as a grouse hawk.

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.
