Objects of Belief; The Christian Lamp with Tom O'Loughlin
From Simon Barnett on September 12th, 2014

Soon after it was first used, a fault in its manufacture led to its being discarded in a rubbish pit where it remained until uncovered by archaeologists. This video explores what this simple object can tell about the domestic religion of its original owners.
