Visitors to a Leeds museum had the chance to get up close and personal to majestic birds of prey.
They flocked to a Falconry Show at the Royal Armouries to see history brought to life.
A flying display at the museum, at Clarence Dock, saw the birds demonstrate their magnificence in flight.
Afterwards visitors could join the Falconry Experience to handle, feed and fly eagles, owls and falcons.
On the other side of the city, visitors to Harewood House can now take a trip back in time during a celebration of medieval history this summer.
Exhibitions, tours, events and activities will help people discover the past of the historic house.
Recently-revealed Harewood Castle, a Grade I listed 14th century ruin, has been conserved and will be open for group visits on various dates.
Daily tours are also taking place of the Gawthorpe Hall site, which has been excavated in partnership with the University of York.
This lost medieval manor house preceded Harewood House and finds from the dig including a stone gargoyle, silver-heart ring and a Bronze Age arrowhead are on show at the Terrace Gallery.
At All Saints’ Church, a new digital fly-over of the medieval landscape has been created and artists have provided their responses to the medieval history of Harewood.
The church is open every day from 10am until 6pm until October and daily tours to the Gawthorpe dig are at 3.30pm until September 2.
