About the Author

John Sabol is an archaeologist, cultural anthropologist, actor, and author. As an archaeologist, he has documented and recorded the manifestations of past soundscapes at haunted ruins. As an actor, he has appeared in more than 35 movies, TV series, and educational TV programming, including the Sci-Fi classic, Dune (1984), and the A&E TV series, Paranormal State. He has written 22 books on his fieldwork, methodology, and his personal experiences on location filming, and his work at haunted ruins around the world. He has also worked on international educational documentaries (in Spain).

He is the director of several documentaries that are accounts of immersions into past ethnographic soundscapes at historic sites now in ruin. In these ruins, he has recorded manifestations of past cultural behavioral fields, including the "culture of war" on several Civil War battlefields and, most recently, coal-mining cultural vestiges and traces of past presence at Centralia, Pennsylvania. He has organized (and played a role in) theatrical "stagings" and "ghostings" (site-specific performances) at haunted locations which recorded "spiritscapes" at these haunted locations.

He has developed numerous scripts and storyboards for these documentaries, as part of a "ghost excavation" series of mediated venues. He has presented video clips and audio tracks of these documentaries at various scientific conferences and popular culture expositions in Europe, Canada, and the USA.
Recent speaking appearances include, but not limited to, Popular Cultural Conferences in Washington, D.C. and in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada; the G.H.O.S.T.S. Conference in Ontario, Canada; several conferences in England including with the Royal Geographic Society (Britain's premiere exploration Society), Seriously Strange Conference in Bath, England; at the University of Kent, Canterbury; CHAT (Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory), University of York, York, England, and TAG (Theoretical Archaeology Group), at the University of Berkley, California and at the University of Buffalo, respectively.
