TALK: The Ravenmaster – a life with Ravens at the Tower of London
Chris Skaife has been Yeoman Warder Ravenmaster at the Tower of London since 2011 – a job for which he was selected by the ravens themselves.
Chris will speak about his life as a Yeoman Warder and how he become the only Ravenmaster in the world. He will tell us more about the ravens antics and how they are free to fly during the day – but also how he persuades them return to their cages at nightfall. For ‘If the ravens leave the Tower, the kingdom of Britain will fall…’.
