We went camping in Finland this summer and spent one day in the city of Turku. In the city museum part of Turku Castle I found this wooden figurine, depicting a victim of the Black Death.

By the time we reached this part of the castle however, my kids (3 and 6 years old) were so fed up (I can’t blame them) I didn’t have time to write down any details about the statuette. If someone reading this have, please write a comment.

Where Am I?
