I don’t like to brag (okay, I do) but I know an amazing number of talented people. One of them is Chris Skaife, Yeoman Warder (Beefeater) and Ravenmaster at the Tower of London. Together, he and I have launched a new website which will focuses primarily on the history of crime and punishment; and what happened to criminals before, during and after execution. We’ve got a lot of gruesome things planned for the site, so please do check it out if you are interested. Our first post is on ‘5 Shocking Facts from the Scaffold’ – you won’t believe some of the stories we’ve dug up!
