Just in time for the final installment of The Twilight Saga to hit theaters, a “vampire” skeleton has been unearthed in England. The skeleton, which is estimated to be as much as 1,500 years old, was discovered bound in irons, with metal spikes through its shoulders, heart and ankles, according to a new report from Southwell Archaeology.

  1. Ok WOW… Besides not being very sparkly I would say being run through like that must be a real bitch… All for being an “Oath Breaker”? AH! I am a habitual disturber of the peace! I would be so dead back then lol Great article!

Nothing’s worse than coming off a creative job and going on to some corporate job and swiping some renegade glitter on a bald CEO’s head. CEOs shouldn’t sparkle, either.

    There was a documentary aired on these burials earlier in the year here in the UK. Much of the ritual was to prevent the corpses of wrongdoers coming back from the dead. All interesting stuff.

So what do you think?
