Ghost of Maid Marian Captured?

The caretaker of the Nottingham Old Court House kept hearing unexplained sounds coming from the dungeon - such as doors slamming. He even claims to have seen a fire door open of its own accord on one occasion and says he is "constantly on edge when opening up."

Recently, he decided to lay the matter to rest and, after hearing a series of inexplicable sounds, he snapped several shots of the dungeon beneath the museum. What appeared when the film was developed is claimed by some to be the ghost of Maid Marian.

Maid Marian was actually not originally associated with the legendary figure of Robin Hood and the two legends likely became entwined throughout time because of their dual roles in May Day festivities. Robin Hood's lady friend was actually named Clorinda.

Regardless of whom or what is seen in the photograph, it certainly appears to be a human form.
