• Village churches often have a graveyard next to them. When people die, the dead body is put into a coffin, and the coffin is buried in a hole in the ground (the grave). Usually there's a gravestone, with the dead person's name and dates of birth and death carved on it. In many countries, rich families have large vaults where all the members of the same family are buried. In many scary films, there is thick mist and lots of ghosts in graveyards, so film viewers get very frightened.
• A squire is a kind of local landowner who has power over the people who live in the village (the villagers), because they are his tenants and have to pay rent to him.
