‘All houses in which men have lived and died are haunted houses: through the open door the harmless phantoms on their errands glide, with feet that make no sound upon the floor.’
Henry Wordsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)
Old buildings often have personalities. There is a palpable sense of place wherever people have lived and loved, and fought and triumphed and despaired. In some places, when the circumstances are right, the events of the past are projected onto the present, just for an instant.
Traditionally across all cultures and as far back as Old Testament times, ghosts have been thought to appear to the living, often with a message or dire warning. More modern theory suggests that these are not lost souls, but recordings from former times. The veil slipped for a moment, and in that interval, a window into a former era was glimpsed and replayed sharing scenes of high drama, crisis or the aftermath of tragedy and remorse. Alternatively, these moments mere vignettes from the everyday sharing moments mundane and ordinary of people and a time no longer with us.
