Plumber Witnesses Roman Ghost Legion

Ghostly Roman Legion appears to plumber and changes his life forever. He just wanted to fix the plumbing. It was the most unexpected and frightening experiences of his life.

Sometimes a window will open in time in which an actual event from the past will seem to replay. This type of phenomena has been called residual energy, an event “imprinted” on time or the “Stone Tape Theory.” The following story is eerily similar to the two woman who claimed to have been transported back in time at Versailles, in France.

The Incredible Sighting Is Authenticated

One of the most incredible and documented cases of this rare phenomena occurred in the UK some years ago. A plumber, Harry Martendale, had been hired to repair some water pipes in the cellar of the old Treasurer’s house in the town of York. It was a cold February day when alone and busy at his work, Harry heard what he termed a musical note. As the sound became louder, he was startled at the apparition of a soldier replete with helmet and plume stepping right through the wall beside him. After the soldier disappeared into the opposite wall, a horse with a rider astride followed. Then more soldiers immediately followed in columns of twos.

Scholars Believe Harry’s Account

The man shaken to his core, later related in vivid detail his experience to scholars. The description of attire and the small stature of the men he “saw” ultimately corroborated his story. The average person, even by reading books, could not have known the intricate details of the uniform dress of that particular time period. Hapless Harry had evidently glimpsed a part of the 9th legion which was stationed at the ancient Roman fort over two thousand years ago!

What Harry Witnessed Is Called Residual

How could this ordinary man have witnessed a scene from the ages ? It is apparent that Harry was privy to, what paranormal investigators call, a Residual Haunting. Somehow this ordinary Roman march was recorded like a video replaying over the centuries. What makes it really interesting is, Harry said the soldiers and steeds seemed to be sunk into the floor which would have been correct. The ground Harry stood on, even on the basement level, was higher than the existing ground the marchers would have traveled on centuries ago.

More Roman Ghosts Seen or Photographed

The M6 Highway has recorded more alleged sightings and spine-tingling feelings than any other route in the country. Roman soldiers, a distraught woman hitchhiker and a phantom lorry going the wrong way have all appeared on the six busy lanes – or out of their users’ imaginations.


Amateur photographer Stuart Murray was out with friends at night trying to get pictures of the Northern Lights. Situated close to the ancient and crumbling Hadrian’s Wall, this spooky apparition appeared, and an image was snapped. Murray, a 26-year-old security engineer, said, “On a good night that area near the wall (Hadrian’s Wall) is very good getting shots of the lights. “At first we thought it was a sheep and then realized it was something else entirely. I have heard stories about a Roman soldier who has been spotted patrolling the wall, maybe the stories are true – who knows.”

What Hadrian’s Wall Is

Hadrian’s Wall was a defensive fortification in the Roman province of Britannia, begun in 122 AD in the reign of emperor Hadrian.

Science is now learning that some mysterious phenomena cannot be explained away and the number of substantial reports and reliable witnesses, are far too common to just be dismissed as overactive imaginations. Recognizing that sixth sense abilities are a very natural part of us can alter our everyday reality. This current paradigm has produced a new view of life much like the film “What the Bleep…” and may provide a greater understanding of paranormal experiences in the future. What many skeptics thought of as fantasy and flights of imagination, has demonstrated itself to be very a real and active part of our human design.
