    Default Ghost in London

    I mentioned this before on here somewhere not too long ago, but this spring I will be teaching a study abroad course. It is called London After Dark and will include a spring trip to London. My three areas of focus for the tour are architecture, theatre, and ghosts. As I have been preparing for the course, I have done lots of research into the three topics. Today, while working on the 'ghost' topic, I found this video of a London Dungeon Ghost that, well, took my breath away.

    Be warned - this is frighting. You have to watch carefully to see the ghost. Enjoy.



    Cheers,
    BD

    Oh my god that looks so real, I'm sure they had difficulty analyzing the authenticity of the tape.

    I have seen this video before...what an amazing ghost video, you can actually hear the ghost coming if you have your sound volume high enough.

    that was scary - speaking of "ghosts" - have any of you read the book by Susan Orlean called The Orchid Thief? I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot of Florida history at the same time.
