The Roman scholar Pliny the Younger was one of the first to write about ghost hunting: 2,000 years later the hunt still goes on. For all the thousands of hours spent by investigators in cold, dark houses, ghosts remain elusive and unproven. This book sets out to be a practical guide to ghost hunting. Examining cases from the distant past and the present day, Ghost Hunting: A Survivor's Guide asks if it is possible to find the truth in this age-old quest. A detailed history of the three major paranormal societies is complemented by advise on which one to join, and when. If you have ever wondered how to organise your own ghost hunt, the list of essential equipment and step-by-step guide to choosing your ideal spooky location is essential reading.
