Description

Despite many investigations in this area, ancient lamps and lighting techniques continue to fascinate. This present work includes articles from Russia, Switzerland, and Ukraine and tackle contextual problems, possible new classifications, iconography, and related lighting equipment. One chapter is devoted to the role of fire in a Late Skythian royal palace, and others explore the North Pontic area, which is relatively unknown.
