Robin S. Oggins begins with a description of the birds of prey, their training, and the sport of falconry. He provides a short history of early falconry in western Europe and England, then explores in unprecedented detail royal falconry from the reign of William I to the death of Edward I in 1307. The author concludes with an overview of the place and importance of falconry in medieval life.
Robin S. Oggins is a retired medieval historian and fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He lives in Vestal, New York.
"Unearthing a wealth of new information, Oggins fills a major gap in our knowledge about medieval hunting." Baudoin van den Abeele, Universite catholique de Louvain "Professor Oggins makes an important contribution to the study of falconry and hawking in medieval England. His book will also be essential reading for those who wish to understand the households of the kings up to the early fourteenth century." C. M. Woolgar, author of The Great Household in Late Medieval England"
