What was involved?...

Living with the Ravens

Legend has it that should the ravens ever leave the White Tower it would crumble and a great disaster would befall England…

Now, if you don’t already know, there are seven ravens that currently live at the Tower of London (the required six, plus one spare). The reason we say ‘required’ is because legend states that the Kingdom and the Tower will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress. To help people learn about the Ravens, Historic Royal Palaces asked the Ducks to tell the Ravens’ story and the accompanying legends for the Tower of London.

When at the Tower, visitors will see the new Ravens enclosure and view interpretation panels created by our friends at Headland Design. You will be invited to download the app; which tells the story of the Tower’s infamous ravens. It has been fantastic to be involved in a project for somewhere steeped in such gory, gruesome history.

Introducing the Raven Master…

Ravens at the Tower

The app includes some of these facts and stories and we also had the pleasure of interviewing Chris Skaife, who gave us an insight into what it’s like to be the current ‘Raven Master’ (what a brilliant job title!). He tells us all about the different personalities of the ravens and tells us some fascinating little stories about various escapees.
