Jarrow, Roman oil lamp
Heating and Lighting
A Roman oil lamp was found "in the ballasting gravel of a railway embankment at East Jarrow, near the Curlew Road", and exhibited to the Society of Antiquaries, Newcastle, in 1929. The railway must have been one of the wagonways or mineral lines in that area.
