Comments from Peter Barry Devers - Here is a similar roundel I have showing a mounted falconer. It has been dated to the first millenium AD, but the exact age is unknown.It is smaller, at a diameter of 2 inches, than the one written about. I plan to bring it to the Met to compare with theirs one day.

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 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.
