What is Ghosts of Wales?
Ghosts of Wales is the collective name given to a series of books, events and most recently a podcast from Welsh author and journalist Mark Rees.
You can read all about them on the dedicated Ghosts of Wales page.
Here’s the publisher’s info on the back of the Victorian Archives book, which can be bought from the books page:
“Do you believe in ghosts? Then attend to my story! Laugh as we may at the idea of ghosts, people do believe in ghosts, and fear them.”
In the Victorian era, sensational ghost stories made headline news.
Spine-chilling reports of two-headed phantoms, murdered knights and spectral locomotives filled the press. Spirits communicated with the living at dark séances, forced terrified families to flee their homes, and caused frightened workers to down their tools at the haunted mines.
This book – Ghosts of Wales: Accounts from the Victorian Archives – reveals for the first time more than 50 hair-raising – and in some cases, comical – real life accounts from Wales dating from 1837 to 1901.
Unearthed from the newspaper archives, they include chilling prophecies from beyond the grave, poltergeists who terrorised the industrial communities, and more than a few ingenious hoaxes along the way.
