Ancient Greece

Ancient Greeks were afraid of the dead rising from their graves. This is supported by some of their writings, describing the dead stalking people who wronged them. There were also multiple graves found with large, heavy clay vases on them. There were even some found with large rocks placed directly on the body. They also found some spells found at grave sites that were meant to bring back the dead and have them do the spell caster’s bidding. Necromancy, y’all!

Regarding the illustration: For those of your unfamiliar with the American infomercial for the adhesive, Flex Seal, the guy in the commercial creates a motor boat out of it and rides it around. It’s funny, I swear.
