Dr. Robert J. Wallis was part of an international delegation visiting The Arctic Centre at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands, in order to participate in a workshop considering Long-Term Perspectives on Circumpolar Human-Animal Relations, 17-21 January 2017. Dr. Wallis’ paper presented his recent research on early Anglo-Saxon falconry, considering the faunal remains of raptors, the preponderance of birds of prey in art, and small bells (specifically the find from the royal burial ground of Sutton Hoo), as evidence for falconry in the period. The international workgroup, with delegates from the UK, Norway, Denmark and Finland, are developing a collaborative project examining ‘Perspectives on Circumpolar Human-Animal Relations’.
