Tsaliki on the Lazzaretto Nuovo "Vampire"

I previously discussed the Lazzaretto Nuovo "vampire" here.

Anastasia Tsaliki wrote an e-mail to Michael E. Smith, blogger of Publishing Archaeology, in which she raises some very valid points about the media's coverage of the alleged vampire.

The e-mail was incorporated into Smith's blog entry, "Vampires, the Media, and Quality Control in Archaeology".

Journalists, take note!

Good morning Matteo,

I'm gonna have to presume that you're the actual Dr. Borrini, even though there's no link in your profile.

Thank you for your third person comments. Your resource lists certainly looks interesting, but I still don't buy the Lazzaretto Nuovo find was a vampire proper. A shroudeater, maybe. A vampire, no.
