Synopsis: Archaeologists in Poland found the skeleton of a female “vampire” during a grave dig in Pień village. According to reports, the skeleton was cut with a knife on the neck and buried in the grave. It appears that the grave dates to the 17th century.
The most recent shocking find is the remains of a female “vampire” were found by Polish archaeologists during a grave excavation. The skeletal remains were unearthed in the village of Pień, located near Ostromecko, in Poland. A group of Polish researchers from the Institute of Archaeology at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń made an announcement about the remainings. It skeleton of the female vampire was first noticed in late August during a grave excavation in the village of Pień after which the archaeologists began digging.
According to researchers, the skeleton was discovered in a grave that dates to the 17th century. Surprisingly, there was a padlock on the toe of the left foot of the skeleton and her neck was sickled with a sharp knife before burying.
According to an official statement made by the researchers in Poland, “It can be assumed that those who were burying the woman were afraid that she would rise from the grave due to some reason. It might also be possible that they had a doubt that she was a vampire hence they decided to padlock her while burying her.
People claim that the “so-called” blood-sucker would have been decapitated by the sickle, and the padlock is there to prevent her from going back. These are some of the common tricks used by vampires, as those who have dealt with such monsters are aware. Additionally, the way the remains were discovered is very reminiscent of anti-vampire burial practices. Earlier, such graves were found in some parts of Eastern Europe.
Leading researcher Professor Dariusz Poliski stated, “Ways to protect against the return of the dead include cutting off the head or legs, placing the deceased face down to bite into the ground, burning them, and smashing them with a stone.”
He continued, “The sickle was not just put in the grave while burning the vampire but was placed on the neck in such a way that if the vampire would attempt to wake up then, the sickle would likely cut off or injured the head.”
It has been said that this is among the strangest vampire-related archaeological discoveries made by Polish archaeologists.
