Victorian Ghosts Laying Bagpipe

January 21, 2020

When we think of ghosts in the modern era, we often think of them in Victorian garb and spinning spooky stories from the 1800s...but why? Find out (ish) this week on Spoop Hour when we delve into the Victorian ghost story, including why they became so popular & why they might persist. Also answer the question: What has vampires, King Arthur, the Victorian era, and Tesla? (Spoiler alert: our new favorite ridiculous video game.) And finally, embrace some rumors about Queen Victoria with the tales of John Brown the servant ghost and the queen herself's ghostly successor.
