Atglen, PA— Schiffer Publishing, Ltd., is pleased to announce the release of Haunted Historic Colonial Williamsburg Virginia: with Breakthrough Ghost Photography by Tim Scullion featuring groundbreaking ghostly photos of America’s largest living museum. This book is a look into a world we cannot see with the naked eye. The advanced electronics of the digital camera have become the eyes through which we can see evidence of the paranormal! Most ghosts, apparitions, phantoms, wraiths, or whatever you choose to call them, have an appearance like nothing you have ever imagined—are you ready for proof of an alternate reality?

Join ghost photographer and researcher Tim Scullion on a two-year tour of Colonial Williamsburg, America’s haunted historic city of ghosts. Visit 43 creepy locations where Scullion describes his paranormal odyssey to capture and explain each apparition, a bit of historical and paranormal background of the building it appears in or over, and insights about these ghostly beings that he has learned from careful observation. With more eighteenth-century buildings and homes than any other place in America, Scullion has learned the secret to consistently capturing ghostly apparitions of all kinds on camera. Examine 230 paranormal images that are beautiful, ugly (if not horrifying!), bizarre, and defy explanation. He also provides historic accounts, ghost sightings, and narrative, insights, and introspection for each location. Colonial Williamsburg is a hotspot for ghosts!

“About 5 years ago while working at Colonial Williamsburg as a tour guide, I was asked to give ghost tours. I was a profound skeptic about ghosts, but I did it because it sounded like fun. On these ghost tours, every once-in-a-while someone would take a photo (usually with just a cell phone) and capture something paranormal that no one could see with the naked eye. As a photographer myself I thought, if a random tourist could capture something on a cheap cell phone camera, what could I do with my equipment? So over the next two years I began to experiment with my techniques and with the technology. I began to get ghost photos of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Out of over 10,000 photos taken in a 2-year span, I have selected 230 of the very best to include in this book. I have classified these photos into three different categories:

  1. Geo-lights—apparitions of various colors and geometric shapes of light,
  2. Classic whites—with an appearance of a white, ephemeral face with eyespots and sometimes a nose and/or mouth feature, and
  3. Visages—faces with distinguishable human features. However, there are some photos which defy a rational description and for which I have no explanation—perhaps only God does.

The great thing about Colonial Williamsburg is that there is a concentration of ghosts here due to the area’s amazing history and its role in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. For those that are skeptical of the veracity of the photographs, I have set aside a folder of some of my best photos to be released at the proper time to be examined by experts so that they can determine that they have not been tampered with or altered in any way! This book not only is proof that life continues after death, but also that the forms that it can take are boundless. It has profoundly changed the way I look at life and death, and I believe that it will do the same for anyone that reads it. Existentialism is no longer a viable belief system; here is proof that there is life after death, along with an infinite number of questions that we know no answers to . . . yet!”—Tim Scullion
