By now this story has circulated the internet pretty widely--if you haven't read it, some ancient gravesites in Ireland have received some attention because some of the corpses were buried with large rocks forcibly inserted into their mouths. The ritual was likely related to the fear of Revenants, vampires, and the plague.

Its worth your time to click over and read the article and ponder the fear of death, and how man has tried to make sense of the world around him for these past few centuries.
