Ancient Vampire Burial Uncovered In England

Luckily it worked. Via the Telegraph:

The discovery of a skeleton found with metal spikes through its shoulders, heart and ankles, dating from 550-700AD and buried in the ancient minster town of Southwell, Notts, is detailed in a new report. It is believed to be a ‘deviant burial’, where people considered the ‘dangerous dead’, such as vampires, were interred to prevent them rising from their graves to plague the living.

The skeleton was found by archaeologist Charles Daniels during the original investigation of the site in Church Street in the town 1959, which revealed Roman remains.

John Lock, chairman of Southwell Archaeology, said the body was one of a handful of such burials to be found in the UK. Mr Lock said no one could be sure why the body was staked in the way it was: “People would have a very strong view that this was somebody who, for whatever reason, they had a reason to fear and needed to ensure that this person did not come back.”

    Please tell me they pulled out the spikes and unleashed this unholy terror upon the countryside. When will science stop its meddling…

    considering that at this time England was being invaded by Germanic tribes
    (Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Frisians, and Franks)
    and that Southwell, Notts is right in harms way of the invasion
    this could easily be the response of the Celts to their German invaders

        anything that takes your attention away from living outside the mass mind
        anything that sucks you into the mass mind
        is a psyop/advertising/marketing thingy

        if you spend an inordinate amount of time hunting vampires, zombies & elites
        you will spend less time on research that could extricate you from the system
        e.g.:

        they don’t care if you known 911 was an inside job
        they merely want to focus debate on it
        so you’ll be unable to just leave it behind and abandon them to their system

        right now I’m heavily involved with seed selection for spring planting
        and am about 3 years from being to self-sufficient & sustainable
        that research was invaluable
        knowing the that a “vampire” is buried in Southwell, Notts is not
