Vampire Skeleton Found In Bulgaria
Dateline: Sokopol, Bulgaria, 7 June 2012
Archaeologists excavated two suspected “vampire” graves in the Black Sea town last Sunday, and each 700-year-old skeleton had an iron rod pinned into its chest.
In recent years, remains of individuals treated as vampires have been discovered in many places, among them in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Tennessee, and in the ancient Roman era. In the latter case, stones were shoved into the skeleton’s mouth.
