Excerpt from Folk Lore of East Yorkshire The learning of the common folk, acquired by tradition, experience, or observation, and epitomised under the comprehensive title of Folk Lore, has, in these late years, received much attention, and its study has been prosecuted with due diligence and increasing interest. Learning and culture have given their invaluable aid, and scholars have traversed the treasures of the past, and have shewn us that the hoary antiquity of the Pyramids is not whiter than that which is borne by some of our nursery tales; that many of these tales are world wide; and that old customs, speech, and beliefs, linger with a tenacity which is difficult to loosen. The superstitious Welsh miners in the Morfa Colliery, who caused a special examination of the pit to be made, in consequence of "spirits and noises and slamming of doors," previous to the disastrous explosion, are but typical of the great mass of people whose lives are more governed by folk lore than by book lore.
