Animation of the Day: Roman Oil Lamp from Jamestown

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory (VCL)


Today’s animation is a Roman oil lamp recovered archaeologically by Jamestown Rediscovery from a 17th century context in summer 2006, as detailed here.  It may have been part of a gentleman’s cabinet of curiosity.  This object was scanned in the Jamestown Rediscovery laboratory on April 18, 2014.
