Until recently, this claim was not challenged even in scholarly literature. Th ere are, however, no allusions to the Tower Ravens before the end of the nineteenth century. The ravens, today meticulously cared for by Yeoman Warders, are largely [b]an invented tradition[/b], designed to give an impression of continuity with the past. This article examines the few known references, both graphic and textual, to the Tower Ravens through 1906.[/i] http://www.animalsandsociety.com/assets/library/737_s4.pdf [/quote]

A thief broke into the Tower of London and stole keys belonging to guards in an astonishing security blunder.
The raider is said to have managed to scale the Front Gate to enter the fortress which holds the Crown Jewels.
The bunch of keys which unlock drawbridges, were in a metal box which was meant to have been securely locked
Guards spotted the thief, but could only radio for assistance, as strict rules meant they could not give chase as they were unable to leave their posts.
