The Vampire has fascinated Western Europe from the early 1700s, but the tradition was a real part of Eastern European lives for a considerable time before that. The archetype has been taken up by art of all kinds, but what is the authentic history behind the tales of the predatory, living dead?

Deborah Hyde, editor of The Skeptic, looks at recent attempts to understand the folklore and tries to work out how an eastern European ritual made its way to late 19th-century New England.
