Narrated by John Glover, Haunted History mixes documented facts and cultural legends to create an entertaining look at historical events. While viewers may not believe the ghostly accounts, the stories told here offer a chance to learn more about different communities and the various legends and superstitions that drive their cultures.

Folks who enjoy or are intrigued by supernatural phenomena will probably like what they find here. Others may just find the whole thing creepy. But regardless of how you feel about the subject matter, overall the series offers a unique way to talk about history.
