The Vampyre Community History Project


About the Vampyre Community History Project:

The Vampyre Community History Project is an ongoing project of the South African Vampyre Academy. It originally began in early 2010 as a project of House Valur, but was passed on to the Academy later. 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 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 obtained from direct sources, whether from authors or publications, credit or mention of the source has been mentioned per item.

If any part of your own work or reference to it has been included in the Vampyre History project and if you feel your work has in any way been violated or plagiarized, or that permission to include whatever reference to your work is required, please notify us at

While every effort has been made in order to ensure relevance of content, neither the Vampyre Community History Project nor the Vampyre Academy accept any responsibility for the accuracy or factual correctness of the content referred to within the Chronology, as by implication it is merely a reference to material already presented by third parties in the public domain as factual and accurate.

This resource has been put together with the intention of providing a FREE easily accessible resource, however in the course of updating portions of this resource, our researchers have frequently found whole portions of the gathered material – some of it written by our staff – reproduced on other websites – some of them commercial sites advertising vampire-related products – verbatim, piecemeal and without any acknowledgement.
