These are Ghosts that are sighted on the roadsides in Brittany, France. They make no sounds and are usually people on foot, horse or cart travelling along the road. Only when one passes does he or she recognise that they have witnessed an Ankou. When they turn around the Ankou has already vanished.

Ankou has been viewed 1614 times.
