OGOM meets Spring-Heeled Jack- the slides

Dr Karl Bell has very kindly forwarded the slides to his Spring-Heeled Jack talk and you can view them here:  Open Graves talk PP

Kaja and I particularly enjoyed SHJ’s appearance on New Port Arch in Lincolnshire  (Lincoln is her home town).

Thanks again to Karl for a wonderful talk in which he made pertinent links to the Victorian vampire myth. I am grateful too for his lively chat with my research students afterwards in the uni bar. A good time was had by all. I will certainly be following up some research links involving SHJ’s theatricals…..

You can contact Karl about his new research project at supernaturalcities@port.ac.uk

    There was certainly a nerdy moment when we caught each other’s eye when he mentioned New Port Arch. It’s meant to be the oldest Roman arch that you can still drive under. My friend’s house is just by it and it is certainly impressive even after all this time.
