Design an Ancient Roman Oil Lamp
by Penn Museum
Lamps have been found throughout the Roman world from all periods of its history. Like their modern counterparts, these lamps allowed people to lengthen their day or conduct business in dark places. Archaeologists find these artifacts in a variety of contexts, such as houses, shops, temples, and other buildings.
