Roman Oil Lamp 8cm
Imagine what life was like in Ancient Rome, who would have used these lamps and for what purpose?
Artistically designed Oil Lamps such as these were in common use across the Roman Empire. Oil Lamps like these have been found across many different roman archaeology dig sites.
The artefact is not only great for historical enquiry and compare and contrast activities but can also be used as a link into cross-curricular learning such as an art and craft project.

The lamps were not very well made, rough edges and finishing and one had a 'white slip' over it . we have sent it back for full refund.
