Sure, it seems like in the past women have done men's jobs that only men were suppose to do. For instance live theator had men dressed as women for the women parts. Ladies see how far we have come.
For instance while the pony express mail delivery there were women who bound their breasts and dressed like men and they did the job. Also during some wars in the past women would bound their breasts and dress as men and fight.
In this day and age with medical exams before entering the service it would probably be inpossible to pass as a male.

All castles (in the UK) tend to have some kind of ghost or ghosts associated with them on account (as YB points out) their age and the fact that most have seen a fair amount of bloodshed and dark deeds committed within their walls.

Whether the ghost stories are accurate or even true is a completely different matter. People investigate castles and other allegedly haunted locations with a view to experiencing some element of the paranormal - as a result they go with heightened expectations and are thus more likely to attribute perfectly natural phenomena as having a supernatural cause - for example 'cold spots', unexplicable noises and dark moving shadows.
