Long story...

In the books, the Barrow Downs were inhabited by the ghosts from Angmar, the ex-realm of the Witchking. Since the ghosts were dead (obviously), we like to consider ourselves dead, since we are the current denizens of the Barrow Downs.
But Melkor also was there, and he came to the house of Fanor, and there he slew Finw King of the Noldor before his doors, and spilled the first blood in the Blessed Realm; for Finw alone had not fled from the horror of the Dark.
