Do You Believe In Ghosts?
You may be reading this now while somethingelse is reading it over your shoulder! Althoughyou can’t see them, does that mean they don’texist?Like religion believing in something sometimestakes a leap of faith, however I prefer solid factsand science so here at Project-Reveal we will tryto keep a balance between science andspirituality.We are a local Paranormal interest group that has been established for a number of years now andhave been to many indoor and outdoor locations,have we found anything I hear you ask, wellsome would say yes while others still need thatsolid piece of evidence, to witness somethingextraordinary and capture it on film. That is theholy-grail for a ghost hunter for want of a better word.So as a first issue which you have found we willkeep you amused for a while with some articles, pictures and stories from around South Yorkshireand beyond, please feel free to visit our web site,out internet T.V. channel, become a friend of ours on Facebook.We like stories, articles and pictures sent too anddon’t forget to leave this copy for the next personto read and don’t have nightmares.Simon Miller Editor and Project-Reveal Historian.www.project-reveal.comwww.livestream.com/projectreveal
What Is a Ghost?
A ghost - or spirit or apparition - is the energy, soul or  personality of a person who has died and hassomehow got stuck between this plane of existenceand the next. Most researchers believe that thesespirits do not know they are dead. Very often theyhave died under traumatic, unusual or highlyemotional circumstances. Ghosts can be perceived bythe living in a number of ways: through sight(apparitions), sound (voices), smell (fragrances andodors), touch - and sometimes they can just be sensed.
Do Ghosts Exist?
Ghosts exist in popular culture and in ghost stories, but are there really disembodied spirits in cemeteriesand haunted houses? There are many groups today(like ours and Ghost Hunters on TV) that hunt ghosts,searching for evidence of life after death. They maytake pictures in hopes of catching an orb, and recordEVPs (getting a recording of a ghost's voice). Youmay have seen one yourself or one of your familymay have seen one, or may-be you don’t even realizeyou have seen or felt something that doesn’t belonghere and now.If you have a story, send it to us and let’s keep thehistory alive.

The Electro-Magnetic Field Meter (EMF)
An EMF meter (or EMF detector) is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic fields (abbreviated as EMF). Mostmeters measure the electromagnetic radiation flux density (DCfields) or the change in an electromagnetic field over time (ACfields), essentially the same as a radio antenna, but with quitedifferent detection characteristics.There are many different types of EMF meters, but the twolargest categories are single axis and tri-axis. Single axis metersare cheaper than tri-axis meters, but take longer to complete asurvey because the meter only measures one dimension of thefield. Single axis instruments have to be tilted and turned on allthree axes to obtain a full measurement. A tri-axis meter measures all three axes simultaneously, but these models tend to be more expensive.Electromagnetic fields can be generated by AC or DC currents.An EMF meter can measure AC electromagnetic fields, whichare usually emitted from man-made sources such as electricalwiring, while Gauss meters or magnetometers measure DCfields, which occur naturally in Earth's geomagnetic field and areemitted from other sources where direct current is present.
So Why Use Them For Ghosts?
Well, here’s the confusion. Some Ghost hunter’s believe thatghost’s emit electromagnetic forces that can be detected by theseinstruments, trying to locate a presence.However If there is any electromagnetic fluctuations thenParanormal Investigators might therefore wish to measure theelectromagnetism that is present at an investigation site withinterest. They should note the intensity of the EMF, they shouldrecord the variations of the EMF and they should try and locatethe sources of any EMF. This information may provide themwith useful information that may help them determine the truenature of the experiences that are reported to them.A lot of research has been undertaken that does strongly suggestthat when some people are exposed to a powerful EMF or a less powerful but varying EMF they may report sensations that theymay believe are paranormal in origin. These effects include asense of presence, a sense of touch, anxiety, unease, fear, nauseaand even an 'Out of Body' sensation.
Always try and establish a cause for high readings before jumping to conclusions. Mobiles and Wi-Fi are commoncauses as well as other electrical devices.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT A SET OF BASELINE VALUES AREESTABLISHED FOR EACH LOCATION YOU PLAN TO MAKEMEASUREMENTS OF. ONE METHOD OF DOING THIS IS TO SIMPLYPLACE THE METER AT THE CHOSEN LOCATION FOR AT LEAST 15MINUTES MAKING A NOTE OF THE READING EVERY MINUTE. BYAVERAGING THESE MEASUREMENTS YOU WILL HAVE A '15MINUTE' AVERAGE TO COMPARE ANY SUBSEQUENT VALUESAGAINST. THIS NEED’S TO BE DONE FOR EACH LOCATION BUTULTIMATELY IS WORTH THE EFFORT AS SUBSEQUENT DATAWILL BE MORE VALID IN TERMS OF ANY UNEXPECTEDVARIATIONS FROM THE BASELINE VALUE.

Sheffield’s Haunted Carbrook Hall
JUNE 2010VOL 1 ISSUE 1
Carbrook Hall has stood on the outskirts of Sheffieldfor nearly half a century, This grade2 listed building,built in around 1620, was an addition to the originalhouse from around 1462, and owned by Sheffield’spowerful Bright family. In fact a house has stood onthese grounds from as far back as 1176 and originallyowned by the Blunt family.Most of the building was demolished in the 19C andall that stands today is the Famous Carbrook HallPublic house which has now been selling ale tocustomers since around 1861 and was in the handsof Phil Skelton who lovingly restored the pub to how itstands today. During the English Civil war the ownerof the time was colonel John Bright on the side of theparliamentarians, and in the Old oak room, they laidplans to take back Sheffield castle from the hands ofthe royalists. In the surrender of the castle ColonelBright was appointed governor of Sheffield in August1644 and later governor of York, Hull and High Sheriffof Yorkshire. He was also M.P. for the East Riding in1654 and on 16 July 1660 was admitted into theorder of baronets, having been previously knighted.It is said that in this, the most haunted public house inSheffield his ghost still wanders. The room we are innow is known as the Oak room and is open to thepublic. The ornate carvings around the fireplace inthe Oak Room are works of art, and the whole roomis oak-paneled, displaying a typically Elizabethanpattern. Flowers are the dominant theme - andparticularly the emblem of the thistle. In this room(which still has the original door) the walls are twofeet in thickness - a sturdy reminder of olden times.Above is a ceiling of very old plaster, re-painted bythe current owner in what is thought to be its originalcolours and had to be painted while they were lyingon their backs ,reminiscent of Michelangelo, and took3 weeks to finish. The carving over the fireplaceshows a nun who has fallen into disgrace. She hasgrown a tail because of her transgression, and isbeing condemned by the Church, symbolized by theform of a Bishop who stands over her. The mottohere is "Wisdom trampling upon Ignorance". Aroundthe fireplace are two fine, rounded pillars, carved withone or two shields and interwoven with flowers.plastering over, but the heavy crude timber beamsrun right through into the bedrooms. The Black OakRoom (also not open to the public) is Oak Panelledlike the one we are in now and a carving on theAs in most Elizabethan houses, the servants livedseparately from the household and what is left of theservants quarters are at the top of the house (which isnot open to the public), with thick walls and large timberbeams. None of the wattle and daub walls are visiblethrough many years of plastering over, but the heavycrude timber beams run right through into the bedrooms.The Black Oak Room (also not open to the public) isOak Paneled like the one we are in now and a carvingon the fireplace represents a bird hunting a worm. Thereare also one or two small heads carved after theElizabethan style. A door leading off from here, whichnow conceals a small cloakroom, once gave way to thestaircase leading down to the Oak Room and Cellars.We wonder if Dick Turpin ever used this staircase as anescape hatch! There was once a small window at thegable end, but when the light tax came into force, thiswas filled in and paneled. On this site also stood amonastery which could also be the reason for its statusas the most haunted pub in Sheffield. The owner andmany patrons to the pub have seen glimpses ofsomething moving from the corner of their eyes, or felt apresence around them.The green fields of Carbrook have vanished forever, butit is pleasant to think that a strong link with our pasthistory is still maintained, through the presence ofCarbrook Hall.Here it stands today, as it has stood through manyturbulent centuries; the scene in which it was first sethas changed beyond all recognition, but the Hallremains - treasuring within its walls the craftsmanship ofa more leisured age, and bringing the lives of the menand women who once knew it closer to our own.More Pictures and Videos of this are available on ourwebsite.
