Probably the World's Oldest Ghost Story

Overall rating 5 out of 55 (1 rating)

Last updated 12 June 2013, created 24 March 2012, viewed 2,853

Ghost stories have probably been told since humans first learned how to tell tales. However, this particular story was told by authors from the Ancient World so it can lay claim to being the first ghost story to be written down. It leaves some questions for the children to answer and contains all More…the ingredients we have come to expect of the ghost/horror story: the haunted house, the restless corpse, the rattling of chains, the beckoning finger. It really goes to show there is nothing new under the sun.
