WWW.SHROUDEATER.COM - The Vampire of Brzesc Kujawski - POLAND
"Vampir- und Wiedergängererscheinungen aus volkskundlicher und archäologischer Sicht"
from: "Concilium medii aevi" 1 (1998)
When archaeological research took place at an ancient cemetery near Brzesc Kujawski, the remains of a man were discovered. A wooden stake had been driven through his left chest and, apparently, through his heart.
The grave is said to date back to the 2nd half of the 11th Century, possibly early 12th Century.
Brzesc Kujawski can be found about 10 kilometer of Wloclawek, which in its turn can be found West of Warsaw.
You could start with finding and checking out Annett Stülzebach's rendering of the facts. And after that you can move on to her source: Kaszewscy: "Wczesnosredniowieczne cmentarzysko w Brzesciu Kujawskim". Good luck, I do hope your Polish is better than mine ! : )
