The Hidden World

We just watched a documentary about Iceland and the belief that remains there of a Hidden World. This hidden world is populated by elves and faeries who seem to inhabit rocks and stones. The elves are referred to as Hidden Folk or Huldufolk.
The prevalence of this belief is such that sometimes the authorities have the alter the paths of planned roads, so as not to disturb certain stones.

You can watch the full documentary film here.

  1. That is so neat. I love thinking about that other, magical world. It seems like something I imagined as a child. I love that they are careful where to build roads in case it effects them.
