    • Definitely not zombies. Zombies as we know them don't appear until the 40s-50s. If the Victorians knew them at all, it was "voodoo" zombies, which are very different

    • Actually to protect from grave robbers but okay. Nowadays we have a concrete box we put the coffins in with a slab lid or the whole graveyard would be uneven and have mounds everywhere.

    • Those are mort cages. People used to steal bodies and sell em to doctors and professors so they could disect em and study em. Cages prevented body snatchers from taking the corpses. You could even rent those big rocks to keep the coffin lid shut until the body decomposed past usefulness

    • Actually, vampires weren't even a thing until the early 1900's, when the first vampire movie was filmed (Nosfurato, otherwise known as Dracula. Not sure if I spelled it correctly.) Pretty sure Zombies weren't a thing either, since they had no idea about germs or how diseases worked. Just saying...

    • Voodoo zombies from that era were a wizards henchman, and could be defeated by leaving salty crackers out for them. Tasting salt makes them realize they’re supposed to be dead so they crawl back into their grave and go night night. Or close enough to that, it’s been awhile since I read about them.
