VAMPIRE GRAVEYARD … Legends and Stories

Heads placed between legs of decapitated skeletons found in Poland

.

The grisly discovery, made in Gliwice – a town near the Czech Republic border, includes four decapitated skeletons with their heads placed on their legs. Archaeologists say this bizarre anatomical rearrangement is indicative of ancient execution rituals designed to ensure the dead do not return to life.

The age and fate of the bodies is still open to speculation, though records of long-passed Slavic communities suggest those accused of vampirism would be decapitated or hung from a gallows until decomposition naturally severed the head.

Dr Jacek Pierzak, one of the archaeologists on the site, said the skeletons were found with no jewellery, belt buckles or buttons, which makes dating the ‘vampires’ difficult. “It’s very difficult to tell when these burials were carried out,” he told a local newspaper.

The remains have been sent for further testing but initial estimates suggest they died sometime around the 16th century.

Unlike the classic Count Dracula image of a blood-sucking aristocrat with slicked-hair and a penchant for all things red, the definition of a vampire in the Middle Ages was almost all-encompassing. Accusations of allegiance with the undead were particularly common as villages transitioned from Paganism to Christianity, when conformity to the old customs was enough to raise suspicion.

Bulgaria’s national museum chief, Bozidhar Dimitrov, said as many as 100 ‘vampire corpses’ had been found in the region in recent years. “They illustrate a practice which was common in some Bulgarian villages up until the first decade of the 20th century,” he explained.

Let’s go over some popular vampire myths shall we?

Vampires cannot be in the sunlight.
This one is pretty simple. The dark is frightening, the light is not. A creature of the night is much scarier than a creature of the light. However there is a real disorder where people cannot be touched by the sunlight. Porphyria is an allergy to the sun where the affected person gets blisters and swelling. This is a very rare disease which apparently in the past would have had no explanation except for a blood sucking creature.

Vampires live forever.
Did you know that there was such a thing called “immortalized cells”? The aging process is partly predicated on the lifespan of our cells; as long as they continue dividing, we remain young, and structures in our cells called telomeres play a part in cellular division. The telomeres can be extended through an enzyme. So the secret to immortality is in our very chemistry.

Vampires drink blood.
Suffering from a blood deficiency such as anemia may cause a thirst for blood. They need an extra source of iron, and sometimes that could come from a nice bloody steak. However, eating this steak and drinking blood is something entirely different. So we have to think… if we lived in the middle ages and saw a human eating a raw, blood steak we would be quite concerned, wouldn’t we?

Vampires are mass murderers.
Now remember that “clinical vampirism”? Well it turns out that some of the people who claim to have this happen to be murderers. This could also be associated with the fact that they are crazy, but still, its a link.

The Vampire Monster of Boston

In 1867 a Portuguese sailor named James Brown was caught in the act of sucking the blood from a the neck of a man he had just killed. It was Brown’s second blood meal of the day. He was placed in an insane asylum after President Andrew Jackson commuted his death sentence. He attacked other patients in the Insane Asylum and then escaped. He was finally killed in Sacramento California after he fled there after he escaped from the Insane Asylum. He was caught in a prostitutes room after he had killed her and was in the act of sucking her blood when he was shot and killed.
