Sveagruva: Norwegian coal mining in Spitsbergen

Norwegian coal mining in Spitsbergen during the 20th century took place not only in Longyearbyen but to a large degree also in Sveagruva. The mines, infrastracture and settlement of Svea, as it is usually called, are spread out over a large area. Hence, for an easier overview it makes sense to separate the area into four different parts: the actual settlement of Sveagruva, the mines Svea Nord and Lunckefjellet and the harbour at Kapp Amsterdam.
