HEY HELLO, HERE'S A HULL HISTORIAN'S HISTORICAL HULL HAUNTINGS....


TOP TEN HISTORICAL HAUNTINGS IN HULL BY GUEST BLOGGER MIKE COVELL... 

WE KNOW HE WILL LOVE THIS PIC!!
As Hull prepares to lose its UK City of Culture shiny badge and matching rosette we thought we would let our good friend and resident of Hull, Mike Covell, tell you about some paranormal culture that you may or may not know about.  Take it away, Mike.

"In this day in age a group only has to have a vested financial interest in a property for it to be announced to the world that it is the most haunted property in the world.  Many forget to do the legwork, or look at the historical primary sources to ascertain whether there has been a precedent for historical hauntings at the property. "As a local historian, with an interest in the paranormal, I tackle cases of historical haunted properties by going back in time, albeit through the archives.  With this in mind I have gone through the archives to bring you ten stories from the haunted history of Hull" - Mike Covell

Just when you thought it was safe to turn back on your television… the channel for the paranormal, proper paranormal is bringing you so much paranormal than you can shake a ghostly stick at..

There's no denying the growth of Paranormal on Quest Red, just 7 months old, the channel is now becoming the channel for paranormal, new shows, premieres, different styles, top stars who engage with their fans on social media AND not just the same old repeats again and again and again.

SO YOU'RE A BIG BRAVE GHOSTHUNTER? SO WHAT, I ONCE WORE LYCRA IN PUBLIC!!

So, here I am sat in a graveyard, writing my latest blog post, it's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark. Under the moonlight, I've just seen a sight that almost stopped my heart. I try to scream but terror has taken back the sound before I make it and then I freeze as horror looked me right between the eyes. Am I brave, am I stupid or am I just using the words to a Michael Jackson song to introduce this? Well some might say none, one, two or all of the above, but according to a recent survey, there are far more braver things to do than walk around old buildings and alleged haunted locations talking to things that might not exist and using equipment that might not work whilst you're taking to things that might not exist...

PRINT JUST GOT SCARY: is Haunted Magazine possibly paranormal's premier printed paraphernalia - perhaps?

SOME DAY MY PRINTS WILL COME

Now for the very first time, Haunted Magazine has a place where you can order ALL the issues that we currently have in print... I bet you're jumping for joy by that major announcement, go on admit you let out a little wee too. Come on, be honest....

DEREK ACORAH IN THE CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER HOUSE? YOU KNOW IT MAKES SIXTH SENSE!!

Celebrity Big Brother or as it's known as on social media #CBB starts on the 1st of August and I'll be honest, I normally don't watch it, the wife does, so it's on in the background whilst I am either a) working b) reading c) falling asleep or d) all of the above.  Watching a job lot of jumped up wannabees and egos wrestling to be King or Queen, playing up to the camera and basically talking a load of crystal balls is something I do most days, just by watching the paranormal groups on social media.. 

Ghosts, Witchcraft, UFOs .. just another night in the paranormal hot spot known as Ashfield....

7 MEN CHASING GHOSTS - IT'S ALL IN THE JEANS YOU KNOW!!

We've discovered Nottinghamshire's 'most haunted' location - and it may surprise you...

FLASHBACK TO JULY 2011
Six years ago, we made a FOI (Freedom of Information) request asking for police reports of Paranormal Activity, UFOs, Ghosts and Witchcraft ... 

We got the information back and then BOOM, it was in the papers, on social media and on the radio.

46 reports of Witchcraft, 3 UFO Sightings, and 34 "incidents" involving Ghosts.

EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT GHOST HUNTING BUT WERE EITHER AFRAID OR COULDN'T BE ARSED TO ASK!!

THE BOOK THAT STARTED IT FOR ME
Don't be fooled into thinking Ghost Hunting or as the self-styled experts like to call it, investigating the paranormal, is hard - BECAUSE IT'S NOT! Contrary to popular opinion, there is no rule book, no manifesting manifesto (see what I did there?) and certainly no degree or certificate on your wall is compulsory.  

Don't get me wrong, you acquire skills and improved judgement over time, but that's common sense and eventually it will fall into place. You don't need to be a believer either, some ghost hunters / paranormal investigators are sceptics or sit on the fence types and even if they saw a whole Roman Legion cross they're path they'd find some reason to dismiss it. They should really be called: creaking floorboard investigators, or banging pipes hunters, they are insistent on disproving the paranormal, spending their hard earned cash in doing so. I would say WHY, but this is the paranormal and everything is fair game in this world.


A GHOST HUNTER MATE STABS YOU IN THE FRONT, DON'T THEY?

MY EYES ARE SPOOKIER THAN YOURS?
So, you're out with your friends ghost hunting, OR ARE YOU? Which ones are plotting behind your back to start a new team, which ones are plotting to kick you out of the team and which ones are plotting to call another team up during their live ghost hunt and then hang up, but cleverly remembering to add 141 in front of it?

Millions of Brits, which include Ghost Hunters can’t stand' their own friends – because they are too high maintenance or have no shared interests, a study has found. 

THERE'S A BAND WAGON APPROACHING ... AND IT'S FULL OF GREEN EYED MONSTERS

THE MEDIEVAL SOCIAL MEDIA
The Paranormal is awash with cries and accusations of fakery and trickery at the moment, I can now easily imagine what it was like to be witness to people accused of Witchcraft in medieval times, the slightest suspicion of wrongdoing and / or dodgy-ness and you were thrown in the lake and having survived that, it didn't end there, you were further under suspicion from people and were killed until you were dead.. literally.

ARE YOU BORING THE SPIRITUAL PANTS & KNICKERS OFF OF GHOSTS?


MAN WATCHING MOST HAUNTED!!
So, you're a ghost hunter yes, SORRY i mean you're a paranormal investigator, yes? Do you worry about how boring you come across, how you go on and on about ghost hunting to your friends and not realising your boring them into a snoring stupor? Do you complain too much about how many ghost pictures there are on social media, moan about gadgets, TV shows and all the paranormal shizzle in the paranormal world apart from the paranormal that you are involved in, do you love the paranormal stuff that your friends do but hate the paranormal staff that your non-friends do (even though it's very similar).

IS GHOST HUNTING BECOMING A SAGA FOR THE AGEING INVESTIGATOR?


So, YES we are back, the blog has been inactive for some time whilst we work on other projects such as the magazine, script writing, social media hashtagging and something special for Halloween 2017.

PUTTING THE EVIL INTO MEDIEVAL, THEY COULDN'T SPELL IN THEM DAYS...


Medieval villagers mutilated the dead to stop them rising, study finds. Archaeological research may represent first scientific evidence of English practices attempting to protect the living from the dead. A study by archaeologists has revealed certain people in medieval Yorkshire were so afraid of the dead they chopped, smashed and burned their skeletons to make sure they stayed in their graves. The research published by Historic England and the University of Southampton may represent the first scientific evidence in England of attempts to prevent the dead from walking and harming the living – still common in folklore in many parts of the world.
