The mystery of the cemetery of “vampires” in Gliwice ( Poland ) has been the horror news of this summer. Archeologist Jacek Pierzak has just clarified the happenings.

This summer, more than seventeen graves of the Middle Ages where find in Gliwice, during the construction of a new road. Decapitated skeletons in strange positions, with the skull between the legs or in a hand. They filled pages of the local media.

Now, the same archaeologist who discovered the burials has wanted to clarify the meaning.

They were only different people. For example, hunchbacks or too low men or women, who were killed in bad moments, as a part of a superstitious way of thinking. These people were victims of ancient human emotion: “fear of the unknown.”

Anyway, an important discover to allow more information about old legends about vampires.

Have a nice day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere!

“Vampires have always held a very seductive kind of lore and have always been some variety of attractive, whether it’s attractiveness that’s born of just the physical attributes that they have – this kind of ethereal beauty or translucent pallor – or whether it is more to do with the way they carry themselves.” Colin Farrell.
