Medieval Falconry at Corfe Castle

Historic falconry at Corfe Castle

Follow the story of falconry from its roots in the Anglo-Saxon period, through the Norman conquest and on into the medieval era.

It was during this period that new techniques brought back to Europe by returning crusaders made falconry an increasingly sophisticated pastime beloved of the nobility.
