Swedish term or phrase: bryta en efter en
Hello again


En liten klick bergsmän drev den stora gruvan under ledning av en kunglig fogde som höll ordning när de skulle avlösa varandra och ***bryta en efter en***.

what does ***bryta en efter en*** mean and refer to?

Thanks in advance

So bryta is to mine, and they were taking turns at it. So 'mine in turn' or 'take turns at the face'. This follows on from 'avlösa varann'.
