Maybe the majority of those ancient ghost have moved on. Why would a Neanderthal still be wondering around here on earth? I always wanted to know something else though. Has anybody ever saw or communicated to a ghost who was deeply religious? Like a ghost of a catholic priest, or the ghost of a jewish rabbi or a religious ghost. Most of the ghost that people see or communicate with tend to be like soldiers, or people who died a violent death or regular people from around this era . What happened to all the religious people? Do they not become ghost too and stay around like other violent ghost?? Another good question also, has anybody ever asked ghost about religions? What did the ghost say?? Are there any religious ghost wondering the earth??

Well, I can't speak for Minoan, or Aztec. But, the others cultures do have ghosts.

In Egypt their are two forces: the Ka and the Ba, which represented the individual, and his spirit-self or double. The Ba Bird was the ghost, or astral apparition of the deceased individual. If the Ba and Ka were properly reunited, through a variety of post-death rituals, then the individual became an Akh, which is very similar to our modern ghosts, in that it thinks and acts independently of it's surroundings

In Sumer and Babylon, there are myths which detail the raising of the dead, like the Descent of Inanna. Also, in the Enuma Elish, on Marduk's command, Enki and Ninhursag embody human beings with a "spirit" or "soul" which is how it will remember, after physical death, that it was/is a living being.

As for why we no longer see the ghosts of ancient Egyptians, or the like... my thought is because their cultures have been completely wiped from the face of the Earth. Ghosts, in my opinion, depend on human consciousness, and human memory/awareness. So, since the records of these cultures are so scarce that we ourselves don't know much about them, how can we perceive them on another level, when we can't even do so on this level?

From your link:

But the oddest thing was that the Roman ghosts appeared to marching on their knees. It was only when they got to part of the floor that had been dug away that Harry realised that they were actually walking on the original Roman road that was beneath the cellar floor.
Eventually, the soldiers had followed the horse through the wall and Harry left his tools and ran. The first person he saw said to him, 'You have seen the Roman ghosts, haven't you?'.
Harry's account was at first dismissed as there were various particulars of his description that didn't fit with accepted history. For instance, Harry said that the soldiers carried round shields rather than the more traditional square Roman shields and that they laced their sandals up to their knees not their ankles. However, it has only been recently discovered from excavations at Hadrian's Wall that in the 4th Century, auxiliary troops carried round shields and they did lace their sandals just as Harry described. At the time of Harry's encounter, it was not even known that auxiliary Roman soldiers had ever been stationed in York.
Although the Treasurer's House is open to the public, the cellars are not. In one way, this is a shame. However it may be that this will have the effect of preserving the Roman ghosts for posterity.

So an obvious question would be, how many places on Earth are at the same elevation as they were a few hundred or more years ago? To interact with a ghost you have to do it in the same physical place that they were at, and that may often be several feet below ground.

Great link. Thanks for sharing.

Good point! That could answer the OPs question... Perhaps the only place to find truly ancient ghosts is below ground. The Romans, although dating back in Britain nearly 2000 years (from AD43) probably aren't ancient enough to be completely buried. Many, although not all Roman ghosts are reported to be partially below ground. I would hazard a guess that ghosts below the surface are of the 'recordings' variety as opposed to spirits..

It could be that ghosts of the past are on a different planes of consciencious than us? Contrary to belief, older spirits would be seen outside in less populated areas, as that is where they spent the majority of their lives. Another thought- how many human entities verses non-human entities are seen? I don't think anybody could put accontability on this. Spirits reportedly seen are dressed in time periods from the 1600's and on. Could it be that the shadow people who's sightings are growing are from another time?
Could it also be that through teachings and knowledge, that spirits have become better equipped to return to our dimension?
