Roman ghouls could rise from the dead sparked by the digging for the HS2 railway, a ghost hunter claims.
Workers on the £100bn line have already encountered sliced-off heads and decapitated remains during Britain’s biggest ever archaeological project.
But Miki York fears they face the wrath of ghosts that don’t want to be disturbed on the route which was once a Roman settlement.
He said: “With the building of the HS2 network, the tracks could go through land where bodies are buried and not necessarily known to all involved.
“If this is the case then the spirits of the deceased could be woken or disrupted and would not be too happy.”
The digging team recently found remains of 40 decapitated Romans at Fleet Marston, near Aylesbury, Bucks.
Some of the skeletons were buried with their heads placed between their legs or next to their feet.
There are more than 100 sites along the HS2 line, which have so far seen 70,000 bodies located to new resting places.
Ghosts reveal their fury at being disturbed with atmospheric changes and unexplained phenomenon, Miki said.
He revealed: “In old reportedly haunted buildings, any building work often sees the amount of spirit activity increase.

“That’s due to the spirits not being happy with the changes that are taking place.
“It’s the same with the bodies of the dead.
“Different religions have different traditions when it comes to the way in which their dead are buried and also how they are kept.
“Any disruption of the land where the bodies are buried then could lead to an increase of strange activity in that area.
“Atmospheric changes in the close area are more likely to happen rather than Julius Caesar and his Roman soldiers being seen.”
Archaeologists have analysed more than 300 ancient coins unearthed in west London during the project.
Dubbed ‘The Hillingdon Hoard’, experts date the coins back to the 1st century BC.
They believe the metal coins could have marked the boundary of a property or were used as an offering to the Gods in a woodland clearing or near a sacred spring.
