Welcome to the Legends Sub-Index

It's often hard to know where legends leave off and anomalies begin, and vice versa. Legends are often cited as examples of some current anomaly from the past, such as claims that old fairy abductions were actually misinterpreted alien abductions... of course, this sort of claim always assumes the new idea is correct and the legends are not; but what if fairies are abducting people and we prefer to believe they're from another planet? In any case, these are legends that are useful for both their relation to stories considered to be truly paranormal, and for their demonstration of the idea of the paranormal from another time and place.
