Were there vampires in New England? Dr. Nicholas Bellantoni will talk about how areas of New England were hot spots of vampire folklore in the 19th century. Bellantoni worked to excavate a gravesite of suspected vampires whose location was revealed when two children playing in a quarry found human skulls. The evidence revealed a posthumous mutilation of the corpse, likely by townspeople who believed the deceased to be a vampire.
