The gold near the surface was exploited by open-cast working and the deeper ore was reached underground by galleries. The galleries were drained by a timber water-wheel, part of which can be seen in the National Museum in Cardiff. Underground coal mining began in Wales over years ago. In South Wales, Friday is associated with bad luck. Miners refuse to start any new work on a Friday and pit-men always stayed away from the mines on Good Friday throughout Wales.
In at Morfa Colliery near Port Talbot, a sweet rose-like perfume was noted. On March 10th half the miners on the morning shift stayed at home.
Later that day there was an explosion at the colliery and 87 miners were buried alive and subsequently perished in the disaster. A robin, pigeon and dove seen flying around the pit head foretold of disaster.
Many precautions against bad luck were taken. The women-folk also tried to banish any bad luck.

I agree. While people from Wales may know something about those monsters, for most people from other countries they are totally unfamiliar.
