Eight archaeological papers, from the Fifth Annual Meeting of the EEA held in Bournemouth in 1999, discuss light equipment across the Classical world, with emphasis on artefacts and trade in the North Pontic area. Subjects include: Bosporan late Hellenistic multi-nozzled lamps; bullhead lamps; a recent discovery from Leptis Magna in Libya; imported lamps and candelabra from Ust'-Alma necropolis in the Crimea; light and fire in the palace of the Scythian King Skilur; a lamp found in a late Scythian grave in south-western Crimea; late antique lamps; early Byzantine lamps. Each paper is well illustrated.
