The antiquity of falconry is very great. There appears to be little doubt that it was practiced in Asia at a very remote period, for which testimony of Mesopotamian civilization works are present. It appears to have been known in China, India, Arabia and Persia ( the silk road). Little is known of the early history of falconry in Africa, but from very ancient Egyptian carvings and drawings it seems to have been known there many ages ago.
