Although, the term “wearh” cannot be directly translated into “vampire,” it is an Old English term that has been used to describe vampires.

A wearh is a monster or evil spirit.

Many authors still use the term when writing about vampires and Anglo-Saxons between England and Scotland  between the mid-5th century and the mid-12th century.
