In the fall of 1928, the town of Glenisville in Scotland thundered throughout Britain due to a strange incident that happened on local cemetery. Missing Grave of Robert Hazlem Arthur Hazlem arrived in Glenisville to pay his memory debt distant relative Roger Hazel, who graduated from his life way in this town. However, the debt turned out to be unpaid: graves on there was no place. Not just a tombstone disappeared, in place, where previously there was a grave hill, now there was a flat place! Fact that the grave was here, confirmed not only the cemetery watchman, but also the burial scheme found in the municipal archive at the cemetery. To resolve all doubts, it was decided to excavate. Dug quite a big hole, but did not find anything. Meanwhile grave Roger Hazlem was found, but only at the other end of the cemetery. New the grave was opened. Under the stove at a depth of 1.5 m. Found a decayed coffin with human remains. That the bones belong to Roger Hazlem, confirmed the ring with a monogram on the ring finger skeleton. The experts called by the police, having examined the burial, were unanimous: it was here originally, parts of the coffin and bone literally “rooted” in the surrounding soil. Scotland Yard Inspector they just shrugged in surprise. They would be even more surprised if you knew that the case with the grave of Roger Hazel is not is unique. Restless graves That graves have the property of disappearing and appearing suddenly in another place was written by Heraclitus Ephesus (ancient Greek philosopher 544–483 BC) and Christian theologian Clement of Alexandria (2nd century AD). In that supporters of Jainism (Indian religious movement, founded in VI-V in BC), this is written in books Confucians. There is also written evidence. In Linz (Austria) in the XV century the burial of the venerable burgher Stetenberg has moved. Residents of the city felt that the deceased was a sorcerer, the bones of the new the graves were dug up and burned. Buried ashes, drove aspen to the grave count In 1627, the Spanish Inquisition considered the case of moving the grave of a certain Pedro Asuntos. Scrupulous monks recorded that the burial has moved along with the cross, the coffin and soil, and in the place of the initial burial was now flat land. In 1740, “escaped” from the cemetery of Ravensburg (Germany) tomb of Christina Bauer. “Runaway” found on the river bank distilled herd of shepherds. Local priest who remembered Christina as venerable parishioner, sprinkled a new grave with holy water and ordered not to disturb the remains (since God so pleased, let it will be so). But among the people, the repose was considered a witch and a grave on tried to avoid the riverbank. In 1895 it disappeared and the tomb of David Lowry appeared in a new place gold digging. The sheriff’s decision in the presence of witnesses was opened both places. And where do you think they found a half-rotten coffin with the remains? Right, in the new “place of residence.” In 1989 Kansas farmer Joe Burnie discovered early in the middle of his yard a grave hill topped with a rickety stone gravestone. The police who arrived thought it was someone’s stupid joke. The version snapped when workers tearing down a hill found in earth decaying coffin with human bones. To extract them, had to call an excavator. Whose grave was it, and from which they could not establish cemeteries. What makes graves to change the initial “registration”? It turned out to be inappropriate a place? Was the burial time fatal? Turned out to be unsociable “neighbors”? There are no answers.
