Vampires Give Us Just One More Thing To Start Worrying About

Vampires Give Us Just One More Thing To Start Worrying About

As if we didn't have enough to worry about, now we need to start considering the existence of vampires.

It might be time to grab your garlic and clutch your crucifix, because a team of historians have uncovered what appears to be the bones of a vampire.


The creepy remains were found two years ago in an ancient cemetery in Kamien Pomorski, Poland. And it seems to have all the markings of a classic vampire burial.

The skeleton had a stake driven through its leg and a small rock in its mouth. The stone was apparently placed in the mouth to stop it biting or sucking blood. And the stake through the leg was usually a tactic to prevent the vampire from leaving the grave.

Slawomir Gorka, the dig leader, said the body was probably buried in the 16th century, although it's hard to tell as he was buried without any personal effects.

The bones are now the top attraction at the Kamien Museum of Land History and organisers are setting up an exclusive exhibit just for the vampire, the Metro reports.

Burials like this were relatively common in medieval Europe. If you were unlucky enough to be accused of vampirism then you could look forward to a gruesome death at the hands stakes of local villagers.

If only they'd have turned up for Robert Pattinson...
