Details

"Medieval Hunting dispels some of the myths and misunderstandings about hunting, including the view that it was chiefly an aristocratic pursuit, and a male one at that. Richard Almond shows that hunting (in which he includes fishing, hawking and poaching) was enjoyed by all classes, and by women as well as men. Using a variety of sources ...the author offers a detailed and captivating picture of a pre-urban world from which the modern age has much to learn in terms of land use and conservation. ...[this book] has much to offer those interested in the countryside and modern field sports".
