At various times in history people have sincerely believed in the existence of fairies, but the characteristics, behaviour, and even the appearance of the supernatural creatures were very changeable, reflecting the changing circumstances and environment of the humans who recounted the tales. So Deborah will ask: what can we learn about people from the fairies? Deborah Hyde is editor of the skeptic (skeptic.org.uk) and writes about belief in the malign macabre at www jourdemayne.com
