How to Be a Grave Digger

How to Be a Grave Digger:

In today’s modern world, bodies are often disposed of in a myriad of ways. For centuries, however, a popular method of choice was to dig a grave, and it served as an important part of how we care for the dead. But what is it like to actually get down into the dirt and carve out a space for a body’s final resting place? Director of Video, Chris Naka, picked up a shovel and joined Ed Bixby, owner and operator of Steelmantown Cemetery in Woodbine, New Jersey, to see what it would be like to actually partake in this practice.

Most Haunted Town in the American South:

Monticello has a reputation for being the most haunted small town in the American South. It is home to Indian Mounds and many historic buildings, including the Perkins Opera House (now the Monticello Opera House) and the Monticello Old Jail Museum.

Many of these places have a history that ‘haunts’ the present. Many a superstitious tourist, history buff, or supernatural hobbyist have enjoyed the history and haunts of Monticello.

Found: Mysterious Ritual Burials From the Iron Age:

While laying down some water pipes, workers at the U.K. utility company Thames Water had a workday interrupted in a rather macabre fashion when they unearthed what turned out to be the remains of 26 people who had been ritualistically buried in pits in Oxfordshire. One set of remains belonged to a woman who was interred with her feet cut off and placed by her side, and her arms bound behind her head. The bones are believed to be nearly 3,000 years old.

'Ghost Adventures' investigation followed by unearthing of human body parts in jars

‘Ghost Adventures’ investigation followed by unearthing of human body parts in jars:

A collection of jars containing human body parts and removed tumors was discovered on the property of the Crescent Hotel in early April, just after an investigation by the Ghost Adventures team on the property. The popular Travel Channel paranormal show referenced the jars, which were undiscovered at the time, in their investigation.

The jars were the property of Norman Baker, a “doctor” who purchased the property in 1937 and turned it into a health resort, claiming he had the cure for cancer. He treated a number of patients, but none were cured of the disease.

How Victorian Mediums Gave Shy Ghosts a Megaphone

How Victorian Mediums Gave Shy Ghosts a Megaphone

How Victorian Mediums Gave Shy Ghosts a Megaphone:

Before the spirit trumpet, conversations with ghosts were restricted to more primitive, nonverbal forms of communication, according to Collectors Weekly. Spirits were known to rap on the floor or spell out words in a painfully slow manner, and mediums would speak the entire alphabet out loud until the ghosts stopped them at a certain letter. The advent of the spirit trumpet broke down these linguistic barriers by allowing the dead to speak directly with the living, kind of like a mobile phone for beyond the grave.

The Extremely Real Science behind the Basilisk’s Lethal Gaze

The Extremely Real Science behind the Basilisk’s Lethal Gaze

The Extremely Real Science behind the Basilisk’s Lethal Gaze:

The basilisk, which slays its victims with a single glance, seems as fantastical as the scorpion-tailed manticore or the Barnacle Tree, which sprouts goslings like fruit. But there was a perfectly reasonable scientific explanation for the basilisk’s lethal look: the extramission theory of vision.

According to the extramission theory, which was developed by such thinkers as Plato, Galen, Euclid, and Ptolemy, our eyes are more than the passive recipients of images. Rather, they send out eye-beams—feelers made of elemental fire that spread, nerve-like, to create our field of vision. These luminous tendrils stream out from our eyes into the world, apprehending objects in their path and relaying back to us their qualities.
