Archaeologists Discover Vampire Gravesites

Archaeologists in Poland uncovered gravesites containing corpses whose heads had been separated from their bodies.  They are believed to be the graves of "vampires."  In the early Slavic tradition, removing the head from the body was believed to keep vampires from returning from the dead.  Archaeologists say the bodies did not have any jewelry, belt buckles, or buttons on their clothes, so they were not sure how old the graves were.

The bodies were discovered during the construction of a new road.
