Details

At Rievaulx come and witness fantastic displays of falconry.

Watch beautiful birds of prey in close action and discover how birds of the chase featured in the teachings of the medieval church.

Discover how hawks generated income for abbeys, the bishops who broke vows over hawks, dedications and pilgrimages to heal sick falcons, plus how some birds were thought to carry the light of God and others branded evil and immoral.
