 The audio presentation with special lightening and sound effects provide an enjoyable, interesting and realistic glimpse into the life of a Victorian copper miner. Sygun offers a rare opportunity for those with a sense of adventure and curiosity, to discover for themselves the wonders it still shelters after being abandoned in 1903.
