 Oil Lamps
(20,000 BC)

Torches made by soaking plant fiber dipped in oil or some oil with fiber in a hollowed out rock may have been in use as early as 20000 BC.

"What was burned in lamps in the prehistoric Mediterranean? Olive oil, as one would first suppose? Analysis of absorbed lipids preserved in the fabric of lamps and conical cups from the Minoan site of Mochlos in eastern Crete shows for the first time that beeswax was used as an illuminant." from Antiquity Publications Ltd.
