"Vampire" Skeleton Discovered in Britain - Metal Spike Through Heart
The skeleton dating from 550-700 AD found buried in the ancient minster town of Southwell, Nottinghamshire has shed light on rare ‘vampire’ burials in Britain.
Long dismissed as myth and legend, the vampire is associated with spooky stories.
It is believed to be a “deviant burial”, where people considered the ‘dangerous dead’, such as vampires, were interred to prevent them rising from their graves to plague the living.
Only a handful of such burials have been unearthed in the UK till now.
