Noble Friends,

Yesterday I stumbled onto this fascinating BBC video about the
*Huldufólk, *Iceland's
elves. While this is a modern story, it is about the continuation of a folk
tradition that fits our SCA period of interest. What is surprising is that
a large slice of Iceland's people take the Huldufólk quite seriously. Oh,
well. We Scots love Nessie.

Enjoy the video at:

More about Huldufólk is found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huldufólk .

Back in 2019 a rock thought to be a Huldufólk "chapel" was carefully moved
during road construction:
