Church Hill Tunnel, Virginia: In 1925 a work train became trapped when part of the tunnel collapsed. Two men remain buried there: Rescuers never located the bodies and they remain under the 190-foot section of the collapsed tunnel. It was announced that the tunnel would be sealed for safety reasons with the train inside. People venturing near the tunnel claim they can hear voices screaming "get me out.” Others have reported the screech of locomotive wheels and the sound of digging. by florence

Several human skulls with horns protruding from them were discovered in a burial mound at Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, in the 1880's. With the exception of the bony projections located about two inches above the eyebrows, the men whom these skeletons belonged to were anatomically normal, although at seven feet tall they were considered to be giants. Burial was believed to have been in the neighborhood of 1200 AD. by jean

Underwater graveyard, Capel Celyn, Wales .Capel Celyn was a rural community to the north west of Bala in Gwynedd, north Wales, in the Afon Tryweryn valley. The village and other parts of the valley were flooded to create a reservoir, Llyn Celyn, in order to supply Liverpool and The Wirral with water for industry. The village contained, among other things, a chapel, as the name of the community suggests, capel being Welsh for chapel. by maria.t.rogers

The Grauballe Man was found on the 26th of April 1952, near the village of Grauballe, Denmark. He was discovered by men cutting peat for fuel about three feet below the surface of the ground. When they were digging one of the workers, Tage Busk Sørensen, stuck his spade into something that he immediately knew was not peat; he noticed the red hair pupping up and  realised he had found the head of a human body. by Nina Maltese

In 1674, skeletons of 2 children were discovered under the staircase leading to the chapel at the Tower of London. Believed to be the remains of the "Princes in the Tower", the skeletons were buried, on the orders of Charles II, in Westminster Abbey. In 1933, the grave was re-opened & the skeletons determined to be those of 2 young children, one aged 7 to 11 & the other 11 to 13. Therefore, the skeletons could belong to the missing Princes. If only the Queen would allow DNA examinations! by beulah
