What Is Dead May Never Die

Vampires are BACK! Archaeologists in Bulgaria have discovered human remains with iron rods through their chests. These remains date from the Middle Ages, although apparently this custom has been practiced as recently as the last century. Apparently, 
"People believed the rod would pin the dead into their graves to prevent them from leaving at midnight and terrorising the living."

Regional customs for dealing with vampires vary. In Venice, those suspected of vampirism were buried with a brick between their teeth (this is confusing to me, as it suggests that vampirism could be detected before someone died). 

Screw werewolves, zombies, witches, and faeries. Vampires are eternal, and eternally awesome. 

More yes.
