'Vampire of Venice' skull found




Scientists in Italy have found the skull of a woman with a brick in her mouth, suggesting she may have been considered a vampire.

The skull, discovered in Venice, dates from the middle ages and the brick was probably an attempt to prevent her rising from the grave.

The skeleton was unearthed in a mass grave from the Venetian plague of 1576 - in which the artist Titian died - on the small island of Lazzaretto Nuovo in the Venice lagoon.

I have posted a picture of the skull and a video report from the BBC at the Worldview blog.

Freaking Venetian vampires. They should get back to their own countries! (Transylvania?)

Yes, I know they were born there, but that's no excuse!

Hrmmm....

I'm really interested as to why they believe this was done post mortem. Seeing as to how we have treated assumed witches all through history, my money is on the assumption that this brick was shoved into the mouth while alive.
