HuffingtonPost - How did people during the medieval times protect themselves against zombies? They shoved rocks into dead corpses' mouths.

Archaeologists recently uncovered two skeletons dating back to the 700s. Both remains had rocks wedged in their mouths, a custom that was believed to prevent people from coming back from the dead,Chris Read, an archaeologist from the Institute of Technology in Sligo, Ireland, told Discovery News.

The skeletons were dug up as part of a large research excavation near Loch Key in Ireland, which has unearthed more than 120 other remains, CBS reports.

The ritual was not performed on all dead bodies, only to the ones of people considered to be dangerous, such as "enemies, murderers, rapists, ordinary people who died suddenly from a strange illness or murder," according to Discovery News.
