I’ve been visiting Blaenavon’s Big Pit museum as part of the ‘Mines’ research and have lost all perspective.
Mining is an expression of Human will to relate - in fine detail, to what lies in the seams of rock and minerals that make up the surface of our planet.
It’s not like I’ve been walking around Big Pit in open-mouthed awe at what used to happen there, I’ve spent most of the time laughing my socks off talking to and listening to the guides (all ex-miners), who work there. If you’ve been there yourself, or have seen Mathilde’s video, you’ll get an idea of what a brilliantly witty, bunch of show-offs they are.
