Pale Yellow Head without Ears  Location: Cambridge - Sidney Sussex College Type: Haunting Manifestation Date / Time: 1960s Further Comments: The spectral floating head is alleged to be that of Cromwell - this part of his body was finally laid to rest in the building in 1960. Nothing has been seen of this strange sight recently, though there are other reports of an elderly University Don dressed in grey who moves from this campus towards Christ's College.
