This iron lamp, comprising a round bowl on a tripod foot, still contains the remains of beeswax fuel, but no trace of a wick has survived. Iron lamps are extremely rare finds from early Anglo-Saxon England. So far they have been only found in the richest burials like Bloomfield and Prittlewell in Essex, as well as in Sutton Hoo. Early 600 CE. (The British Museum, London)
