Hello

Description of a copper mine in old times

Varje bergsman hade sitt ***rosthus**.

Followed by, but I'm not sure if it describes the "rosthus"

Röken bestod mest av svaveldioxid vilket dödade allt växtlighet i närheten och gav träkten kring Falun ett skräckinjagande och ödsligt utseende.

Thanks

Also called burning house, according to the mining directory I referenced in the "fatare" discussion: "Burning House Construction with a furnace for burning off unwanted arsenides and sulphides. Used from at least the 16th century, particularly as more load matrerial was being processed."
