Lampen von der Antike bis zur Neuzeit. Begleitheft zur Ausstellung

An unusually large number of Roman lamps were discovered in one of the biggest Roman cemeteries excavated in Southern Germany, in Heidelberg. A description of these lamps is being published by Andreas Hensen. As he stated, almost two centuries ago the Heidelberg archaeologist and ancient
studies professor Friedrich Creuzer coined the term “Lychnologie” (study of artificial lighting). Thus, it is fitting that the International Lychnological Association (ILA) hosted its third international congress in September 2009 in Heidelberg, the native town of Lychnology. On this occasion, and in interdisciplinary cooperation, we prepared this short exposition of Classical, Provincial Roman and Medieval Archaeology in the course of a seminar in the winter semester of 2008/09.
