Reports emerge of archaeologists who have discovered the remains of men staked to prevent vampirism in Bulgaria. The rate of Vampirism in ancient Bulgaria appears to have been 2 per 700 adults, though perhaps only men were staked. A rare but deadly condition, which apparently was prevented using wooden or iron rods (iron was reserved for the richer vampires) and may not have been officially sanctioned – “brave men” opened the coffins after burial to do the staking.

I wonder if Buffy was there?
