(Scroll down for video) Archeologists found four vampires buried in a grave, Polish archaeologists said in a statement.
However, officials did not indicate whether garlic or a crucifix were found in the grave.

Their remains were found with the head placed between their legs. A popular tradition holds that this burial arrangement would ensure that a possible bloodsucker could not find the head and bring it back to life.

Although an archaeologist involved in the discovery said that it is very difficult to say when these burials took place due to lack of jewelry or other objects that could be dated, it probably occurred long before 1914, the date of the last vampire burial recorded in the country.

The skeletons were found at a construction site near Gliwice, in southern Poland, and tests are being conducted on the remains.
Officials also said that there were other ways of dealing with suspected vampires, such as using metal stakes to secure the body to the ground. Archaeologists in Bulgaria made ​​such a vampire discovery last year.
