The Vampyre History Project

The Vampyre History Project is an ongoing project of House Valur, and has been active since early 2010. The aim of the project is to compile as complete an historical overview in the form of a Chronology or Timeline of Vampy(i)res in history, myth, folklore and also in terms of the development of real Vampy(i)re culture and Community in the context of both ancient and modern history.

The goal of the project, aside from an interest in history, is to create an interest in the community in our past, our potential origins, as well as to generate a sense of identity within the community. As an ongoing project, this is updated regularly and is also constantly being translated and refined while also being translated into Spanish by Mistwolf for use in Spanish-speaking communities. Over the past few years, this publicly available resource has become widely referred to both by community members, as well as by researchers, academics and also those simply drawn by the allure of the vampire.

The bulk of the information presented in the Project has been sourced online via net trawls, gathered from news sites and from references to earlier, less complete attempts to present a comprehensive Vampyre History. Where information has been found widespread across the internet, from general history and in the public domain, material has been referred to without seeking prior permission. Where information has been sourced from direct sources, whether from authors or publications, credit or mention of the source has been mentioned per item.
