Pardubice, East Bohemia, July 11 (CTK) - Archaeologists have uncovered a 4000-year-old grave in Mikulovice, east Bohemia, with remains of what might have been considered a vampire at the time, Nova TV has reported.
The experts made the terrifying find within their research of a burial site from the Early Bronze Age.
One of the graves was situated somewhat aside. The skeleton in it bears traces of unusual treatment.
When buried, the dead man was weighed down with two big stones, one on his chest and the other on his head.
"Remains treated in this way are now considered as vampiric. The dead man's contemporaries were afraid that he might leave his grave and return to the world," Radko Sedlacek from the East Bohemia Museum said.
This is for the first time Czech archaeologists have uncovered a "vampire's" grave, Nova said.
In ancient times, people believed vampires are the dead who occasionally return among the living to harm their health or property.
Well, “Faith” will be back in Joss Whedon’s new show Dollhouse this winter, along with “Fred” from Angel. Not the same, perhaps, but it’s Joss - so it has to be pretty good. ;)
Note to self - when discovering a long buried body weighed down by large stones, don’t touch the stones.
Have you watched “Burn Notice” on USA?
Buff’s the stuff.
Gotta say the words first... Klaaatu... Verata... Bkshs..tu...
Yep; if it’s Whedon, I’m likely to watch it. Too bad he’s so toxic to Hollywood, evidently.
They didn’t get me.
That’s all I have to say about the subject.
For the MST3K version of a blaxploitation film:
Crow: Okay, everybody! In the spirit of the 70’s, I’ve come up with a brilliant blaxploitation film for all of us to star in.
Mike: Crow, I don’t know. It just seems to me that you’ve re-worked “Earth vs. Soup” and inserted jive-y character names.
Crow: Oh, like I’m that lazy... Huh...
Servo: Now I’m confused, am I “Chocolate Jones” or “Sugar-Fly Queen”?
Crow: Ah, you’re both. And you’re also reading the part of “Sweet Mama String-Bean” who runs the Boutique D’ Boute.
Servo: Sweet Mama String-Bean?
Crow: Okay, Mike, ah... Take it from Afro’s and Bofro’s line on the top of page five.
Mike: Okay, girl don’t think on Soul Brothers.
Gypsy: I don’t have any lines.
Crow: Well, but you get to wear slinky dresses and hold guns and stuff...
Gypsy: Not this sister!
Mike: Crow, ya know, I don’t know how to tell you this but, ah, look at me, I’m really not that funky.
Crow: Mike! To me you’re the Don Cornelius of the 90’s.
Mike: Well I... I don’t really see it that way...
Crow: “Chocolate Jones and the Temple of Funk” is a guaranteed bofo-box office. Smudgy the Bootblack which, is of course my part. So I’ll need a cane. Oh and Mike, what size dashiki do you wear? Uh, I’ll get a large. Now, the Cadillac’s...
Nowadays, nobody really believes in all that weird old vampire stuff. These days, we’re much more sophisticated. We just call them Democrats and accept them for the blood-sucking, walking evil zombies that they are.
Ooooh, are vampires always that cranky during daylight hours? ;)
With all his new Barackracy?
We could be looking at the next cover of the New Yorker!
And never drip blood on them!
She would have never won that fight!
But she did.
