OBJECTS MOVING OR BIENG THROWN.
Spirits can sometimes move objects or throw them from across a room. Smaller objects are often thrown to the ground during an investigation.

BAD ATMOSPHERES.

EMOTIONAL PROJECTION.

It is a form of sensing the Spirits presence and personality.

COLD SPOTS AND TEMPERATURE CHANGE
A very common occurrence in haunted places. It can feel icy cold in a particular area and can often be measured with a thermometer. People in such locations can often feel suddenly freezing cold themselves for no apparent reason. Hot spots can also occur.

POLTERGEIST PHENOMENA
Poltergeists are usually not the most pleasant of spirits. They sometimes throw things around and have been known to stack furniture in a way that seems to defy gravity. Poltergeist phenomena is thought by many to be caused by certain psychic individuals. Adolescents are often thought to unknowingly cause such activity.

FULL SPIRIT MANIFESTATION
This is the typical ghost. Sometimes a dark shadowy figure and at other times in a white hazy form. On very rare occasions they have actually been mistaken for ordinary physical people. Very rare but from a paranormal investigators point of view, it's the holy grail of proof.

THE DIFERENCE BETWEEN A GHOST AND A SPIRIT.
Lets say that a roman soldier is seen walking through a wall at the same time every night. If you was to stand in its path and the soldier continued on his course regardless of your presence then the chances are you would have seen a ghost. If on the other hand the soldier stopped and tried to communicate with you or walked away in the other direction, then it would most likely have been a spirit. A Spirit exhibits intelligence and interacts with its surroundings and people. A ghost is more like a recording of an event played back before you eyes and is not likely to be any more intelligent than a blank wall, It is thought that somehow images or sounds of dramatic events can be absorbed by the fabric of the surroundings, much like a tape captures audio or video and then played back before your eyes. Another theory suggests that they may be time anomaly. There are many theory's surronding this subject.

TYPES OF HAUNTINGS.

RESIDUAL.
A residual haunting is thought to be caused by events in the past that have somehow left an impression behind.

STONE WALL THEORY.
It is thought that sometimes the very fabric of the building can somehow act as a giant tape and capture an event of long ago, in the same way a recording devices captures a picture or sound. Some unknown trigger causes the recording to play back. Just a theory however, this is open for debate.

GROUNDED SPIRITS.
Spirits that have not moved on . A spirit may be grounded for several reasons. They may be protecting something or unhappy about something or maybe afraid to move into the light. Who knows?

VISITATION.
These spirits have moved on but return from time to time to our world. Usually it is to comfort a loved one or perhaps just to revisit a favourite place that they loved dearly during their life.

ANNIVERSARY GHOSTS.
Spirits that appear regularly at a particular time date and place.
