By examining remains in old cemeteries and networking with New England archeologists and historians, State Archaeologist Nicholas F. Bellantoni has learned a lot about the New England vampire scare in the 19th century. Bellantoni will share his discoveries in a talk at the Cora J. Belden Library on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
The presentation, Vampire Folk Belief in Historic New England, will detail how Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island became hot spots of vampire belief in the 1800s. It will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The event is free, but space is limited. To register, visit the library website at www.rockyhillibrary.info or call (860) 258-7623.
