“If we are prepared to set aside the automatic scepticism and reductionism of our age, and if we spell out the problem in plain language, then we find that we are contemplating the existence of highly intelligent discarnate entities belonging to an order of creation fundamentally different than our own… By whatever name we know them – spirits, faeries, aliens – it really is almost as though the beings we are dealing with have been changing and developing alongside us for thousands of years, and that they therefore cannot simply be mass delusions, but must have a definite, independent reality outside the human brain.”
Graham Hancock, Supernatural (2005)
As Graham Hancock suggests, the faeries seem to have acculturated themselves alongside humans for a long period of time, adapting their phenomenology to our cultural creeds, but all the while maintaining their own specific metaphysical identity. They appear in folklore through cultural lenses that are distinguished by the worldview of the particular time. This might manifest through prehistoric cave paintings of hallucinogenic supernatural entities, Classical reliefs of human-like nymphs, Christianised medieval tales of marvels, the shapeshifting familiars of Early-Modern witches, or the array of liminal characters only slightly removed from consensus reality into a magical world recorded by 19th- and early 20th-century folklorists. But their presence is persistent. Despite concerted efforts to downgrade the folklore into tales for children during the late 19th and 20th centuries, belief in the ontological reality of faerie entities continues into the 21st century, albeit coded to modern sensibilities. And just as in the faerie folklore of the past, the modern phenomenology of these otherworldly beings is both diverse and elusive – frightening and enlightening.
Frightening and Enlightening: The Phenomenology of Modern Faeries
The tomb where Jesus Christ is said to have been prepared for burial and then buried following his crucifixion has now been dated to the imperial Roman era around the time of Constantine. A recent study shows that it is more than 1,700 years old, going against the accepted belief.
The analysis of pieces of mortar taken from the original limestone burial bed and a marble slab that covers it date back to AD 345. This has led Kristen Romey, archaeology editor for National Geographic, to write , “We finally have scientific proof that this site, the tomb of Jesus Christ, one of the holiest sites in Christianity, has been unbroken for seventeen hundred years.”
The Tomb of Jesus Christ is Proven Older than Experts Thought
The video hosting platform, VidMe is closing on 15th December so I have moved my Tracing the Dragon videos to YouTube for now.
I’ve taken a break from blogging because I haven’t felt the urge to write for a while. But just now I’m intrigued by the row about British water companies using ‘divining’ techniques. It’s the kind of thing that interests me: an example of the great gulf that exists between science and experience – or theory and practice – in matters of this kind.
It started when a couple in the Midlands needed to identify the path of the mains pipes near their home for a building project, and got the local water company to send a technician. They were surprised to see him walking around with ‘divining’ rods. As it happens, their daughter is an evolutionary biologist and blogger, Sally Le Page. She tweeted the company to ask what on earth it was thinking, using occult techniques when there is ‘zero evidence they work’. It tweeted back that in fact it finds some of the older methods are just as effective as the new ones, although it also uses drones and satellites.
(The comments are worth reading too, and following the links in there as well.)

The first evidence for Julius Caesar’s invasion of Britain has been discovered by archaeologists from the University of Leicester.
Based on new evidence, the team suggests that the first landing of Julius Caesar’s fleet in Britain took place in 54BC at Pegwell Bay on the Isle of Thanet, the north-east point of Kent.

According to folklore of Nepal, the “Yeti,” also known as the “Abominable Snowman,” is an ape-like entity, taller than the average human, that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. But is its existence just a myth or is it a reality? A new DNA study based on purported Yeti samples from museums and private collections is attempting to finally achieve a definitive answer to the debate.
Rigorous Genetic Analysis Proves the Yeti is Not an Unknown Species
Officials from the Santa Fe National Forest are sounding the alarm over strange stick structures that keep being built at the site.
According to a spokesperson with the Forest Service, the odd, conical-shaped collections have been appearing with increasing frequency over the last few weeks, leaving authorities both mystified and concerned.
Their worry is that these wooden structures, which sometimes measure an astounding two or three stories tall and boast a diameter of up to twenty feet, are a massive fire hazard.

Today, many people believe that Christopher Columbus was not the first non-American to set foot in the New World. The Vikings, Chinese, Greeks, and Italians may have all been his predecessors. There is also a belief that ancient Egyptians were in the Americas as far back as 1,000 BC. The reason for their proposed journey is rather surprising.
Dr. Svetla Balabanova made a shocking find while examining the mummy of a member of the ancient Egyptian elite – traces of nicotine and cocaine . The question soon arose: How did Lady Henut Taui have access to elements from the tobacco and coca plants about 3,000 years ago?
Dealing in the Past: How Did Ancient Egyptians Get Nicotine and Cocaine?
A pair of paranormal investigators in England have announced plans to try and contact the infamous Black Eyed Kids using, of all things, a Ouija Board.
Dale Makin and Justin Cowell will be venturing into the notorious British forest known as Cannock Chase, where a series of BEK sightings allegedly took place back in 2014, as part of a forthcoming documentary.
The duo insist that their investigation will be scientific, although skeptics are likely to scoff at such a suggestion since they will be doing their ‘research’ using a Ouija Board.
Could a Ouija Board Contact Black Eyed Children?
Laura Carter was thirty-six, lived in New York, and was employed by the Post Office when I interviewed her in 2007. She related to me the details of a distinctly odd and unsettling series of occurrences that took place back in mid-1985. On one particularly warm summer’s night, Laura said, three of her friends had come over to visit. Her parents were out of town, and so the girls planned to have an evening hanging out, playing music, drinking, and and generally having a fun time.
From a Ouija Board to Sasquatch
Considering its melting-pot designation, the United States has a curious fairy deficit and there has always been debate about whether the People of Peace arrived with Irish (or any other) immigrants. As an engineer of my acquaintance put it: “If fairies are real, why would they come to America? And if fairies are not real, why would they not come?”
Fair questions, both: why leave the Dear Green Place? (Unless the fairies, too, were suffering the horrors of the Famine.) And if carried in the collective imagination of the emigrants, the Gentry ought to have manifested wherever their hosts were found. But that is what my chapter is about: Did the Fair Folk come to America? That and a fairy abduction in Iowa.
One American artist felt the lack of American fairy lore keenly and was inspired to do something about it. This was Frederick Judd Waugh [1861-1940], son of a Philadelphia portrait painter, who, after finishing his artistic training, moved to the island of Sark in the English Channel, where he painted seascapes. He was very good at it, in a Royal Academy sort of way and, during the First World War, used his experience to design ship camouflage for the U.S. Navy. But he chafed at the conventionalities of his career and longed for something to stir the imagination. He found the answer in tree roots and bits of driftwood.
Magical Folk and Munes
Although every country has – at least at some point of time – had its share of beliefs in mythological creatures that have been thought to affect the everyday lives of people, few cultures can boast as widely spread, well detailed and rich tapestry of tales as composes the fairy folklore of the British Isles. In this paper I am going to introduce the faeries of medieval legends, tales and folklore of the British Isles. I will place emphasis on the inspection of the natures and characteristics of the individual faery types in the tales. I will also explore some of the common denominators that bind these different types together, point out a few common concepts that are universal in the faerie legends of the British Isles and mention some of the more curious details, exceptions and variations of the superstitions.
