Could digging on the new HS2 railway lead to a resurgence of Roman ghouls?
One ghostbuster anticipates it – and thinks they won’t be “too happy” about being disturbed.
Workers on the new £100billion line have already uncovered skeletons and decapitated remains during Britain’s largest archaeological project to date.
Ghostbuster Miki York fears irreversible damage.
He told the Daily Star: “As the HS2 network rolls out, the trails could lead through land where bodies are buried and not necessarily known to everyone involved.
“If this is the case, the spirits of the deceased could be awakened or disturbed and would not be too happy.”
The excavation team recently discovered the remains of 40 Romans during a dig near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Some were buried with their heads between their legs or beside their feet.
But Miki says it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing full apparitions any time soon.
Instead, “atmospheric changes” might be the first thing we notice.
Miki said: “In old supposedly haunted buildings, there is often an increase in ghost activity with every construction effort.
“This is because the spirits are not happy with the changes that are taking place.
“The same goes for the corpses of the dead.
“Different religions have different traditions regarding the way their dead are buried and preserved.
“Any disturbance to the land where the bodies are buried could then lead to an increase in strange activity in that area.
“Atmospheric changes in the vicinity are more likely than Julius Caesar and his Roman soldiers to be seen.”
