Most of the ghost sightings in present era came from a dead person on present era.. or from World War era... or Victorian era.. something like that...

So... what/where is the oldest ghost that still haunting until today? Anybody knows?

I wonder if there's any haunted place where the ghosts has been around for like... 500 years? Or probably ghosts from the era of Jesus Christ ??

I guess those old ghosts aren't around anymore... what happened to them?

I have thought about this too. What about spirits from ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt?  and I mean ancient 2500-3000 years ago from the times of Caesar and Cleopatra.  Or what about early homo-sapians when we still lived in nomadic hunter gatherer societies some ten-thousand years ago.  You never here about someone seeing the ghost of a early human wrapped in mammoth skin wearing a necklace of mammoth teeth and carrying a spear of wood with an flint point.

Well, if you believe in the theory that ghosts can be reflections or echoes in time that somehow are sealed in the environment this would make sense. We constantly renew our environment and therefore there would be a vast amount of 'new' ghosts and less and less 'old' ghosts. And perhaps over time the older echoes stop being as potent as they once were. Or perhaps because there's such a large amount of time between those echoes and us we're simply not capable of 'translating' them properly anymore.

I hope I made sense here. blush.gif

Yes that does make sense.

This is a very interesting question for sure. I look forward to seeing whateveryone has to say about this.

There are accounts of a legion of Roman soldiers following an old Roman road, so they would be at least 1600 years old. The road they follow is buried under ground now – So all you can see is from their waist up – This off cause is imprinted ghosts, I don’t think I have heard of any “conscious” ghosts from before the medieval period – There might be an expiring-date on hauntings???

Romans and some occurances in Egypt are the oldest ones I know of. If there wasn't so much fighting going on and people weren't being distracted, I wouldn't be suprised if Sumarian spirits were seen in Iraq.

Ghost stories and sightings have probably been around as long as humans have, but it really would be interesting to find out which is the earliest written about or passed down story!

Maybe hauntings only last a certain amount of time before they 'fade' from the environment? Or the house/structure they reside in gets destroyed so they move on

Or you know when you get told of a haunting and the story goes 'and 100 years ago young Janey was found murdered in the upstairs room so it must be her'. Maybe it is not her and something much older and we just attach it to something modern.

Pliny the Younger in Selected Letters around 100CE wrote of a haunting.

That is a good question... But really, would we recognize them if we saw them? After all, I doubt that everybody in ancient greece wore a toga and wraps leaves around their heads as they walked arounf in sandals. It begs the question - when a ghost is sighted how do we know what era it comes from? After all, sightings of ghosts dressed in victorian garb may just be people who died while going to a costume ball.....
