The headless and the heedless

I’m interested in antiquities so haunted ancient monuments are a particular attraction. I’ve noticed that many ghosts associated with prehistoric burial mounds are described as headless – is this because so many skulls were robbed from ancient tombs? You can read about some haunted burial mounds in my latest article on Uncanny UK and also the frightening consequences suffered by more than one treasure hunter who dared to defile them, awakening the angry spirits at rest there.

I am the editor of Uncanny UK (www.uncannyuk.com), a website devoted to British ghosts and folklore. I am the former editor of Paranormal Magazine and the author five books on Welsh folklore. Just launched Apparition Developments, first product of which is Ghost Finder London - an app plotting 300 haunted sites in London for iPhone. I'm a highly experienced journalist and corporate copywriter. I'm an enthusiast on the subjects of UK folklore, the supernatural and antiquities and am fond of old horror and sci-fi movies, cult TV such as Dr Who and I collect Victorian/Edwardian magazines. I also enjoy weird art and macabre literature by the likes of M R James, E F Benson, Algernon Blackwood, W Hope-Hodgson, H P Lovecraft etc. I live in North Wales, which is a very spooky place.
