A ‘vampire’ skeleton discovered in a grave near a church can now be viewed in a museum.

The collection of bones was found two years ago in an ancient cemetery in Kamien Pomorski, a town in northern Poland, and apparently had all the markings of a vampire burial.

Dig leader Slawomir Gorka said the man had probably been buried in the 16th century.

The skeleton had a stake driven through its leg and a small rock in its mouth.

The stone had been put in the body’s mouth to apparently stop it from biting or sucking blood from its victims.

And the pierced tibia and femur (normally with iron spikes) was done to prevent the vampire from climbing out of its grave.

The bones are now the main attraction at the Kamien Museum of Land History and organisers are preparing an exclusive exhibit just for the vampire, according to Polish website fakt.pl.
Now there's something to get your teeth into. :D

Just no one go poking their fingers in its mouth! I can just imagine it coming back to "life" after someone pricks their fingers on a fang and bleeding into its mouth.
