WWW.SHROUDEATER.COM - The Vampire of Prenzlau - GERMANY
"Siedlungsbefunde und Bestattungen im Zentrum von Prenzlau, Kreis Uckermark"
found on the internet - date and source unknown
It is possible that archaeological research was being done, or perhaps work in progress was the reason why graves were opened. Those are things we can try to find out if and when we follow up on this case. What is important: "special burials" were discovered. "Sonderbestattungen" as the Germans would call it. The most interesting one - for us that is - was a wooden coffin with the remains of a very old invalid man whose corpse had been pierced by a 7 cm wide stake.
No date is given.
Prenzlau can be found North of Berlin, about halfway to the coast.
Obviously we have to find back the internet site that featured this interesting item. A search on the author and the title of his article should be sufficient to find it back. But I have already got a print of this page and I am not going to do your work for you. Remember, this site is not about publishing complete cases. It is meant to kick people out of their chairs so they will do their own bit of research.
