Hunting was a major economic and leisure activity throughout the later European Middle Ages, but while aristocratic practices have featured in studies of romantic and narrative literature, hunting in its wider sense – across the social spectrum and with attendant male and female roles – has largely been ignored by modern medieval historians.
Richard Almond’s study brings vividly to life the universality and centrality of hunting to medieval societies, both as an economic necessity and as an expression of medieval humanity’s almost atavistic sense of oneness with nature.
Medieval Hunting dispels some of the myths and misunderstandings surrounding hunting, including the persistent views that it was exclusively an aristocratic, male pursuit. Using a wide variety of contemporary textual and art historical evidence, Richard Almond shows that hunting, including fishing and poaching, was enjoyed by all classes, and by women as well as men.

RICHARD ALMOND was formerly senior tutor and lecturer in History and English at Darlington College of Technology, part-time lecturer in Medieval History at the Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge and Invited Visiting Scholar at St. John’s College, University of Oxford. His approach towards research and writing utilises two pertinent areas of his experience: as a medieval and Renaissance and art historian and as a lifetime hunter, angler and conservationist.
