Historical reports shed light on mysterious events, aerial phenomena and strange beings throughout written history. When humans started to record their experiences, whether on stone, papyrus, or other means, they have included strange events, aerial phenomena, supernatural sights, and weird beings. Historical archives have accumulated these experiences covering many centuries and countries, and through these archives we have discovered a catalogue of events long forgotten. Charles Fort, a trailblazer in researching anomalous phenomena, proved that there is much more to our world than we can presume. In the past few decades, there has been an explosion of online resources to further our research into the history of these strange sightings through newspapers, books, diaries, etc. This has opened a field of research for both Ufologist and Fortean alike. These historical records add to our understanding by finding patterns and similar experiences that can be used to better understand more current Fortean events.
Kay Coggin has been interested in UFOs and all kinds of Fortean events for much of her life. After discovering her knack for research abilities through several years of genealogy work for family and friends, she joined Magonia Exchange. She now contributes archival Fortean articles to authors and researchers from around the world. She is semi-retired from the healthcare field. She lives in Georgia with her husband and two rescue animals, Dee-Dee and Whitby.
