Wednesday’s Brain Burger, “Archaeologists Save the World from Vampires, Zombies and monsters,” illuminated the many things archaeologists are teaching us that might be useful in the coming monster apocalypse.
Here’s a quick, compact, survival-kit-sized list of 4 things the brainy diggers do to save the world from the dark creepies:
- Bulgarian archaeologists have uncovered over 100 “vampire” burials showing medieval methods of preventing the dead from rising.
- Cave paintings discovered by archaeologists of half-man/half-beast creatures dating back tens of thousands of years suggest that we might want to take our werewolf “myths” more seriously than we do.
- Archaeologists in Guatemala are decoding 2,000-year-old Mayan monster art to determine why their cities were suddenly abandoned.
- Could depictions of headless bodies excavated by archaeologists at ancient Egyptian sites be proof of a zombie history we need to learn from?
Archaeologists: Gutsy people with brains – we’ll need them on our team at doomsday!
