Vampire Skeletons Discovered in Bulgaria

Vampire skeletons have been unearthed in Bulgaria, according to Channel News Asia. Before you get your hopes up that remains of actual vampires have finally been discovered, nothing conclusive about the existence of blood-suckers in that region has been confirmed. All scientists have found thus far are a couple of bodies with rods shoved through their chests, a practice which was thought to prevent “bad people” from clawing their way out of the graveyard.

According to legend, individuals with a propensity towards evil were magically transformed into vampires upon their death. If an iron or wooden rod wasn’t inserted directly into their chest, effectively pinning them to the ground, these people would rise from their graves around midnight with one thing on their mind: to terrorize any and all living beings who were unfortunate enough to stumble into their path.

Bozhidar Dimitrov, the head of the national history museum, discovered the remains in the town of Sozopol, which is located near the Black Sea. Regarding the discovery, Dimitrov explained, “These two skeletons stabbed with rods illustrate a practice which was common in some Bulgarian villages up until the first decade of the 20th century.”

Roughly 100 similar burials have been discovered in the country already.

In other words, if you suspect that your mean, ugly Uncle Ronny has the potential to become a savage, blood-drinking creature of the night upon his death, grab the nearest broomstick or fireplace poker and pin that guy to his coffin as soon as possible. I’m only kidding, of course. Everyone knows that vampires don’t die, and that they secretly dwell in suburban neighborhoods. At least that’s what Hollywood has taught me, anyway.

    Recent studies in UK have shown that it was common to “nail” corpses to the ground or use spikes in order to prevent grave robbery, which was a huge problem as medical knowledge began to develop. It seems that grave robbers only dug a hole large enough for one man to slip through, break a hole in the coffin lid, and pull the body back out through the hole. Pinning the body to the ground with a metal rod, made this more time consuming than worthwhile and damaged the value of the cadaver. This is the stuff that legends are made of.

    Wouldn’t we need to see some fangs in the skull for it to be a vampire? Even if they were pulled out, there would be a recess. On second thought, the vampire would have healed the skin and bone around the missing fangs, wouldn’t he? Or he would have grown new ones.

    • QAlchemist

      The original vampire myths didn’t have fangs; they were actually closer to what we now think of as zombies than the popular Hollywood vampire. Shambling corpses bloated with blood that would rise from their graves to devour the living at night, returning to their graves during the day.

      No fangs. Just human teeth.

      • Idi ot hunter

        @QAlchemist – You are also a dipsh**!!!

    Vampires don’t have fangs and although they heal more quickly than humans, it’s not ‘wolverine’ style by any means. They are not immortal nor are they dead. A stake thru the heart would kill anyone. Some vampires in ancient times would sharpen their canines to make themselves look more intimidating to prey which is where the myth started. Sunlight, silver and garlic are all myths too, as is the one about them having no reflection when seen in a mirror. That ought to get you lemmings started.

    • Idi ot hunter

      @Akhkharu – When you get finished being Dungeon master, you should do a few searches on reality and think before you post some Bullsh** that you and only you thinks is cool, or based even marginally in fact. You my friend have also earned the title of DOUCHE!!!

    i was sodomized by a vampire one time. that was not cool, in fact i’m going to be really pissed off if i caught aids.

  • Shellyb_vampiress17@Yahoo.com

    This is obviously a decoy to distract people from the Zombie and Bathsalt shit. The government is ALWAYS wanting to distract you from a serious issue with some silly nonsense. There ARE zombies and there is a REAL medical term for them. And yes, this drug they are selling as Bath Salts /CAN/ turn you into a Zombie temporarely. If you are going by ” Oh but zombies cant go back to human ” then you are an IDIOT and that’s in MOVIES. This is REAL LIFE.

    • EVE L

      Oh, please. Get a life!

  • NOPE nodda

    idiot hunter….enough with the horribly lame comments towards everyone, let it go man…let it go

  • Old Tech

    Howdy, Vampires of old, Vampires of now, Differences? don’t know, I wasn’t around back then to make that comparison, though Vampires now go by different titles, ” Politician, Lawyer, and Doctor “, Proof….. how hard they ” Bite ” your finances, while caring nothing for your ” Human ” life….

  • alabamagirl

    Some people will believe that these skeletons are actually reamians of vampires and some won’t. It just depends on the beliefs of the person. I personally believe that it is real to an extent, but not to the extent of vampires. If vampires ever DID exist, I would assume that they were like the vampires on the House of Night series. That the vampires had human teeth and acted like regular people, felt uncomfortable in the sunlight (NOT going to turn into ashes, and started as a fledgling and it taking 4 to 5 years to fully develop into a vampire. If they ever did exist, this is what I believe. You don’t have to believe me cause I don’t care. This is my opinion about it. Plus everyone who has already commented needs to grow up and act mature and not insult others for their opinion or sarcastic comment about it.

  • Jeremy-hillrod

    Lol, people have been taking bath salts to get high for a few years, they dont just turn you into a zombie. Second, shelby, you are a dumba$$!

  • Melissa

    Not pertinent to the story but David Tennant’s Roddy McDowell reprisal in the remake of Fright Night was the only great performance in a really crappy film.

  • No taking stupid as a answer

    You are a ass some people have no other means of eating or supporting their families and bitches like you have to make stupid comments like that. Americans are so bold and big headed to the point that we sometimes lose focus on the thing we call life which any and all have the right to live. I work and I support food stamps and all that anything to degrade someone why so you can feel better about yourself people need to just leave other people alone and worry about what’s going on in your home and not others and we will be fine

  • Jess

    Did you all know Twilight was a remake? This is what happened to the original actors…
