about

A round-the-world investigation of the vampire myth, including a recently discovered "vampire skeleton," brings historic and scientific context to our enduring interest in vampires. Legend and lore are examined through the lens of history, archaeology, anthropology, and forensic science in this delightfully written book by Mark Jenkins, now in paperback. It's a great addition to the pop culture conversation, adding both humor and depth to the vampire craze.
Mark Jenkins is chief historian of the National Geographic Society's archives and author of several books, including The Book of Marvels, Worlds to Explore, and High Adventure, an illustrated history of the Society.
