Behold, the Vampire-Killing Kit

Stakes. Mallets. Crucifixes. These form part of a vampire-killing kit located in the Royal Armouries in Leeds, England. It’s one of the only two vampire-killing kits in museums around the world. When was the kit assembled, and what's inside it? Jonathan Ferguson, the Keeper of Firearms and Artillery at the museum, takes us through it—and tells us what the object reveals about the time it was made.
