Melbourne: Archaeologists in Turkey believe they have unearthed dungeons that once held Dracula.

According to reports, restoration works in the Tokat Castle in Turkey have discovered a secret tunnel leading to the Pervane Bath and a military shelter and two dungeons in the castle, where Wallachian Prince Vlad III the Impaler, who was also known as Dracula, is said to have been held as political hostage in the early 15th century by the Ottoman Turks.

Archaeologist Ibrahim 'etin, who is working on the excavations, said that the castle is completely surrounded by secret tunnels and it is very mysterious, but hard to estimate in which room Dracula was kept.
