Episode Summary

Vampire Legend
The Season 15 premiere explores the vampire myth, which—if manuscripts and archaeological evidence are believed—emanated from medieval England. The lore was popularized by Bram Stoker's "Dracula," of course, and still has adherents, including Mirca Mitrica, who recalls taking part in a ritual in 2004 Romania to ensure a possible vampire stayed buried. Also interviewed: Bram Stoker's great-grandnephew Dacre Stoker; and archaeologist Dominic Powlesland, who's uncovered deviant Anglo-Saxon burials.moreless
