In a shocking discovery, Polish archaeologists unearthed the remains of a female ‘vampire’ in a cemetery. The announcement was made by the team of Polish researchers from the Institute of Archeology at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.
The body was discovered at the end of August during a burial excavation in the village of Pień near Ostromecko. According to researchers, the tomb dates back to the 17th century and had the skeleton of a young woman. Amazingly, the skeletal remains had a sickle (a sharp blade) on its neck and there was also a padlock on the toe of its left foot.
The researchers released a statement which read: “It can be assumed that for some reason those who buried the woman were afraid that she would rise from the grave. Perhaps they were afraid that she was a vampire.”
People say the sickle would have decapitated the “so-called” bloodsucker and the padlock was to keep him from coming back. For those who have dealt with such monsters, know that these are some of the most popular tricks for a vampire. Also, the way the remains are found is quite similar to anti-vampire burial methods. Such tombs were discovered earlier in parts of Eastern Europe.
Professor Dariusz Poliński, who led the research, said: “Ways of protecting against the return of the dead are to cut off the head or legs, to place the deceased face down to bite into the ground, to burn it and break it with a stone. ”
He added: “The sickle was not laid flat but placed on the neck in such a way that if the deceased had tried to stand up, the head would probably have been severed or injured.”
This is clearly a unique find in the vampire world.
