"Bulgaria’s latest vampire skeleton found in Plovdiv"
The Sofia Globe, 26-08-2014
Archaeological research was going on in an old necropolis in the old part of Plovdiv, when a skeleton was discovered with a piece of brick in its mouth and a rooftile over its head. According to archaeologist Elena Bozhinova, this was a measure to prevent the dead from rising again, that dates back to the plague and the 15th and 16th Century.
It is suggested that the burial dates back to the 15th or 16th Century.
Plovdiv is one of the larger towns of Bulgaria and can be found somewhere in the middle. Somewhere between Lovech and Smolyan.
No lack of media coverage so it won't be hard to find reports, photos, probably videos as well.
