You can also explain how the story of zombies got its start – in Haiti, an island in the Caribbean where shamans use a medicinal plant to slow a person’s heart rate and breathing until they seem to die. In a place where autopsies aren’t common, people sometimes wake up lying in their coffin. Occasionally, they have been buried but dig themselves out when they wake. It causes an uproar when they return to their village.
A Harvard anthropologist, Wade Davis, documented this in the 1980s. He even met some actual zombies. The culture he studied had long practiced this application of medicinal plants. Centuries ago, ship’s captains and their crews took stories back to their home countries of zombies they had seen.
