Medieval “vampire” burial details revealed
Published on November 5th, 2012 | by Sevaan Franks2
Back in the 1950s a medieval skeleton was found in England with metal spikes through its shoulders, heart and ankles. Details about the discovery are only now being released in a new report about the find.
In reality, victims of this treatment were social outcasts who scared others because of their unusual behaviour. Only a handful of such burials have been unearthed in the UK.
