Vampire Grave Unearthed in Poland

We’ve reported on archaeological digs unearthing graves that showed signs that the deceased was a suspected vampire in Bulgaria, Ireland, and Italy. Now a grave has been discovered in Poland that just screams of vampire fears. A 17th-century cemetery in the village of Pień has yielded a female skeleton buried with a sickle placed across her neck, in a manner that would cut her head off if she tried to rise from her supine position. In addition, a padlock was placed on one of her toes. They really didn’t want this woman to come back.

The odd burial suggests that the woman was suspected of being a vampire even before she was buried. Archaeologists can also tell that she was wealthy due to her clothing. Vampires were a well-known myth in Poland going back as far as the 11th century. You can see quite a few pictures of the skeleton as it was discovered at ScienceAlert.  -Thanks, WTM!
