Mounds, Ghosts, Fairies and Paranormal Activity

Mounds, Ghosts, Fairies and Paranormal Activity


Some of the most active paranormal sites in North America are located in Ohio.  Many of these places are at or near burial mound sites.  This burial mound is located north of Columbus, Ohio





Tumuli may already in pagan times have been pointed out as tombs of gods who died in myth or ritual, like the tombs of Zeus in Crete and of Osiris in Egypt. Again, fairies, in some aspects, are ghosts of the dead, and haunt tumuli; hence, when gods became fairies they would do the same. And once they were thought of as dead kings, any {67}notable tumuli would be pointed out as theirs, since it is a law in folk-belief to associate tumuli or other structures not with the dead or with their builders, but with supernatural or mythical or even historical personages. If síde ever meant "ghosts," it would be easy to call the dead gods by this name, and to connect them with the places of the dead.
