It’s that time of year again. The full moon is out and the night gets a little spookier. But have no fear, we are here to help you make it through the Halloween season. And what better way than to talk about flesh eating zombies! Now I haven’t gone completely mad. We will look at two examples of how the dead walked the earth in medieval times and a historian who recorded numerous episodes of the undead. Grab a pumpkin ale, turn the lights down low and let’s explore the medieval zombie apocalypse.

If you would like more Halloween episodes you can listen to the Haunted Castle series or last years Dracula episode.
