ROMAN GHOSTS IN THE UK
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Roman ghosts in the UK.
Little Chester is a
northern suburb of the city of Derby, in Derbyshire, England, the
place in which evidence of Roman occupation dating from the year 80
AD has been found. This region is also known as Chester Green by
most locals because of the green roads that nature covers with
grass, the original rock of five different Roman roads.
In this city, visitors will find ruins
of a large Roman fort in the city called Derventio and two ancient
Roman wells discovered in the mid-1950. In this place there were
also countless Roman coins and an under floor heating system, and
the ghosts of a whole regiment of Roman soldiers marching down the
old roads over and over during the last few decades after such
Chester Green remains green because it
is sparsely inhabited due to Roman haunting refusing to leave this
place. Some people have witnessed the Romans dressed in their
characteristic military uniform, and even people that do not know
how the ancient Roman soldiers dressed have been able to describe
their garments with historic precision.
Archaeological excavations have
discovered some of those clothing pieces in an estimated area of
seven acres within the old fort, a place to which the ghostly Roman
regiment was stationed in this region probably as par of a maneuver
aimed to the Celts.
Prestigious ghost hunters and
paranormal researchers have stopped by through the years and
determined that such are indeed the spirits of Romans in Derventio,
where many of their bodies were later found in a nearby burial
ground in 1978.
Apart from Roman soldiers, other ghosts
have been seen in different places within the Chester Green area,
but especially around the excavation of a grindstone block called
the Mercury Stone, because its rudimentary representation of
Mercury, the Roman messenger of Jupiter, today exhibited at the
Derby Museum and Art Gallery.
