Cornish spirits that inhabit mines. They are usually friendly and help miners to find treasure but hey can also be quite evil. They do this by creating knocking sound to warn others of danger ahead. They have never been seen but miners have found indications that have been nearby. Some believe that they are the Ghosts of Jews who in Roman times were sent to work in the mines as punishment for their sins. They have been discovered in Australia where they are known as Knackers.
