During my stay in Sweden this summer, I visited the picturesque church village of Koppartorp with its mining museum, not far from the town where I grew up.  The Koppartorp museum with its historical buildings and mineshaft is located on the site of an old copper mine that dates back to the 14th century. While thinking of the miners’ living condition a few hundred years ago depicted in the museum exhibit I descended into the illuminated mining shaft.
