Warsaw. The Archaeological Department of Poland has discovered a surprising thing. During the excavations of the 17th century tomb, such a tomb was found, which everyone was shocked to see. A female skeleton was found there. There is a bump all around. There is a fear behind this that if this woman was alive again, she would have remained in the grave after being decapitated by these sickles. According to the Daily Mail report, Professor Dorrij Polinsky of Nicolaus Copernicus University, the head of the archeology team that investigated the whole case, said the skeleton’s teeth were very sharp like a vampire. The woman wore a silk cap. Evidence of this was found from the fiber of the cap present inside the tomb.
According to the Smithsonian Magazine report, in the 11th century, Europeans were very afraid of vampires. He used to worship anti-vampires in the graves of his deceased relatives and keep possessions. Because in this century, some people believed that even after death vampires would come back and kill humans to drink blood. Therefore, during their burial, sickles were placed around the grave. In the 17th century, people believed to be vampires were buried with sickles around their necks all over Poland. This tradition continued for years. Professor Dorrij Polinsky said these sickles were often applied to the hands and feet.
Also said that there was also a process of burying the corpse upside down in the grave. Thus, if he opened his mouth, he would only eat dirt, otherwise people used to burn him in the grave itself. Other than that, he was suppressed by hitting with rocks. Apart from this, many other such tombs have been discovered in Poland, in which the trick was adopted to stop vampires. For example, the metal bars of the skeleton were hammered in many places with a hammer. The female vampire whose skeleton was recovered had edged weapons in her neck and legs. So that he could not get up in any case.
