& # 39; Vampire & # 39; discovered buried at Cemetery of Children in Italy

A "vampire burial" found at a Roman site in Italy is a testament to ancient burial practices to stop bodies that rose from the dead, according to archaeologists.

The body of a ten-year-old child was ritualistly buried with a stone in his mouth, possibly out of fear that it would return again to spread the community.

Known locally as the "Vampire of Lugnano", evidence collected from the bones suggests that the child was infected with malaria at the time it died.

"I've never seen anything like it, it's extremely frightening and weird," said Professor David Soren, an archaeologist at the University of Arizona who has been carrying out excavations in the region for more than three decades.
