Lore of Fairies

“Several authorities have noted that long-lived fairies have a tendency to call any substantial period of time-‘four thousand years’. Many fairies, when asked about their ages will say they are four thousand years old; what they mean is, they do not know their actual age. Fairies are older than human civilization or possible than humankind.”

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrel, Susanna Clarke
