This Bodes Ill

Anyone who’s watched horror movies knows that when you find a stone coffin with a mysterious sealed lead coffin inside, opening it is a Bad Idea.

We still don’t know who is inside – so there is still a question mark over it… None of us in the team have ever seen a lead coffin within a stone coffin before. We will now need to work out how to open it safely as we don’t want to damage the contents when we are opening the lid.

Vampires!

A possible vampire graveyard has been found in Poland:

Four skeletons were found at the site, where mandatory digs were being carried out prior to the construction of a ring road.
In each case, the deceased had been buried with the head between the legs.
According to folk beliefs, this prevented a possible vampire from finding his or her way back to the land of the living.
There was no trace at the burial ground of any earthly possessions, such as jewellery, belts or buckles.
“It’s very difficult to tell when these burials were carried out,” archaeologist Dr Jacek Pierzak told the Dziennik Zachodni newspaper.
However, it is believed that they took place in the early modern period.

 

An older news story that has a first line that can’t be beat:

The vampire attacked just before midnight on the porch of a vacant Hooters.
