Maybe …not anymore but a recent discovery would suggest that they probably did. What appear to be the mummified remains of a fairy have been discovered in the Derbyshire countryside. The 8inch remains complete with wings; skin, teeth and flowing red hair have been examined by anthropologists and forensic experts who can confirm that the body is genuine. X-rays of the ‘fairy’ reveal an anatomically identical skeleton to that of a child. The bones however, are hollow like those of a bird making them particularly light. The puzzling presence of a navel even suggests that the beings reproduce the same as humans despite the absence of reproductive organs.
The remains were discovered by a local man, who wishes to remain anonymous, while walking his dog along an old roman road situated between the Derbyshire villages of Duffield and Belper. The area has long been shrouded in mystery with tales of ghostly highwaymen and strange ‘dancing’ lights on warm summer evenings.
“I was walking along the lane at a point which passes an old Iron Age barrow (burial mound) when my dog began to bark and act rather strangely. He was barking in the direction of the barrow and would not go anywhere near it which was strange as we walk past it almost every day. I was curious and approached the mound to see what could be disturbing him and it then I noticed something odd…..in the side of the barrow, a fissure as if a section of ground had subsided or opened up. The crack measured about 2ft long and 1ft wide and looked to have been formed recently as I had never seen it before. I knelt down and looked inside the dark hole. The hill seemed to be hollow like a cave as I could feel a cool draught against my skin. I used the small led torch on my car keys to see if I could see anything in the darkness. It was at this point I saw something that startled me, 2 or 3 feet in front of me I could see a human like form only this was much smaller. My initial instinct was to call the police as I thought it may be the body of a small child but as I looked closer I could see that this was not the case. It was too small and more importantly, it had what appeared to be wings! Not want to touch it I used a stick to carefully drag it out and picked it up in one of the dog’s poo bags (empty of course).”
He immediately called his wife stating he had found something ‘unbelievable’ and asked her to bring a camera and a box immediately.“When I first arrived I could hear the dog barking from some distance, I had no idea what he had found. As I approached the barrow I could see my husband crouched down looking a something on the floor. “What have you found?” I shouted, “See for yourself” he said. I looked down and saw a tiny but perfect mummified human body with hair, dark brown skin and more disturbingly, wings. “I know what it looks like”, he said “but how can it be? And there’s not just one, I’ve had another look inside that hole in the ground and there are more!”
The body was taken home in a biscuit tin and kept in a garage overnight. The following day the local police were informed and the remains were taken away for analysis. As a local expert on the paranormal I was approached by the police for my advice although this was kept rather quiet to avoid ridicule and press attention. I was taken to the location by the man who originally discovered this amazing find. On closer inspection the barrow appears to contain more that 20 fairy bodies all in varying states of mummification.
The dry cave like interior has preserved the remains to such a degree that some bodies even have tiny finger nails and eye brows. I have returned since then to document the find as much as possible. On one particular occasion I was shocked to discover that some attempt had been made to reseal the barrow but by whom?
The site appears to be a burial ground for fairy folk and the exact location of the find has not been revealed and no further remains have been removed from the mound. It has not been substantiated how long the remains have been there although the state of mummification would suggest more than 400 years. The countryside could be strewn with hidden burial mounds which have lain undiscovered for centuries. How could such creatures exist without detection for so many years? Cryptozoologists who have examined the remains suspect they have evolved to suit their surrounding so well they would be virtually invisible to the naked eye. Their wings and skin pigment would camouflage them extremely well and they would most probably live in the tree tops and rarely venture down to ground level. In winter they would probably retreat underground into cave networks.Whether they still exist is another question but the remains found in Derbyshire have laid thousands of years of folklore to rest.”

i love fairies and am so excited that they might have once walked this earth! but i am intrested to know if you think there may be more of these strange little creatures, real live ones? of course i have heard stories of people seeing fairies but i dont know if they are true or not. and if fairies are real who knows what other kind of ‘misical’ creatures are out there. are all fairy tales about to be discovered as real? i would love to know more!
Omg can’t believe it but if you found it you would not want to remain anonymous as it will then be told to generations forthcoming that a man found a real one in a country road and those kids could then believe in helping find more. Could be a hoax.
I love fairies but i only seen a dead ones. I do want to see a real life ones by the way thanks for sharing this stuff.
I think you should put the Faery’s body back to where you found it or bad luck will fall upon you.
As with any human burial site, a Faery burial site is just as sacred. Put the Faery back and let it rest in peace,please.I never found one nor would I disturb the ancient sacred burial grounds.
I just saw one of these flying in my back yard last night… the bottom wings fly fast like a hummingbird but the tops are actually slow they make absolutely no noise and being in its presence put the 5 people that were on my porch in awe we instantly got a peaceful feeling through our wentire body it sat there in place staring at us for 1 minute and then I finally figured out what to call it i said holy shit that’s a fairy and it turned looked at me kind of mad I called it out and it flew away best part is I caught it on camera but when I got to look it maneuver the light around its body and was invisible all you could see on my HD camera was a spec of light bending and moving all the way around my screen while 5 people are pointing right at what appears to be almost nothing it had a green glow to it but not like a lightning bug it was a soft green that never stopped just got alil softer and then alil brighter over and over and it looked damn near identical to this creature except for when It flew the wings almost covered the front half of its body like they folded in and when he turned to leave he looked a quarter of the size because all his wings bent forward it was the size of my head saw this last night one night before the blue moon it was 230 in the morning and first it came up and looked right into my window right were my dog normally sits I watch my dog on camera all dot long she sits on my kitchen table and stares out the same window almost like she’s waiting for this mystical creature and I read somewere that fairies will keep pets I live right next to a huge ditch that goes across my entire town full of woods running water and lots of berries and nuts I was so interested I did my own research and found I’m not the first one to see a fairie in the north american part of the world native Americans have had then in there culture for years and years…. going to talk to my fiances soiux tribe leaders to discuss what this means to there people I was told by the heir of a white wich and she said we should play the lottery because we have been blessed bye life however I woke up this morning and my car battery was completely dead idk if theres a corralation or what always used to read Artemis fowl and I’m starting to believe it’s more fact than fiction
