‘Vampire’ Grave Found In Poland
Hjelm adds the notion of vampires being creatures of the night only appeared relatively recently, first with Bram Stoker’s Gothic novel “Dracula” in later in the 1922 film…
Earlier this month in northwest Poland, a vampire grave was uncovered. The body’s teeth were removed, it was staked to the casket and a rock placed in its mouth. Slawomir Gorka headed the expedition to find the notorious grave in a remote part of Poland. Nearly a year ago, four previous suspected vampire grave sites were found. Of course, the circumstances were slightly different if you recall, the bodies had their heads removed, and placed down by the legs. The Polish people had believed vampires were born not made, and could pass this state to children on after death, since they could rise to return to their families. Some Polish scholars have been doing this type of research since the 1950s. How many more grave sites do you think they will find around this area?
