Pop star Miley Cyrus revealed to ELLE Magazine, that she, and others in her family, had experienced a seriously spooky stay in a haunted London apartment. “I was touring in Europe and I needed a home base. I used to have an apartment in London, right across the street from Harrods. I used to have a place right there, and it was really haunted and I had to move. It was seriously so terrifying.”
British builders working on the Crossrail project were surprised last week to discover 13 skeletons, lying in two orderly rows, buried about 8 feet underground, beneath one of the busiest parts of London . Experts believe the skeletons have been lying beneath the feet of commuters for over 700 years and are thought to be victims of The Black Plague (aka The Black Death), the plague which killed over a quarter of the British population between 1348 and 1350. The orderly arrangement of the remains , which were found in two neat rows inside a 20-foot-wide shaft at the edge of Charterhouse Square in Farringdon, suggests that they date from the earlier period of the plague, before it became a pandemic and before bodies were thrown randomly into mass graves.
Spring Heeled Jack – was he a creature, an alien, or a plain-old man wearing a strange costume and a powerful, hidden jumping apparatus? During the 1830′s, this ‘man’ terrorized England. Described as tall, thin, powerful, wearing a black cloak, the man could jump 20 to 30 feet vertical with ease. It was reported that he had large pointy ears and nose, with red (or orange) glowing eyes, and capable of spitting an odd white and blue flame from his mouth.
