"Bulgaria's Vampire of Vratsa"
The Sofia Globe, 27-07-2014
Archaeologists found the grave of a man with a (for those days unusual) length of 1.80 meter. He had been buried with a large white stone placed on the side of his heart. According to archaeologist Alexandra Petrova, this was an anti-vampire measure. Just like the fact that his feet had been tied together.
We have not been given a date, but somewhere there is mention of medieval.
Vratsa is a small mountain town that can be found in the North-West of Bulgaria, somewhat to the North of the capital Sofia.
This case did not get quite the coverage that the other Bulgarian "vampire" cases were given. Still, there is plenty to be found.
