Dendera Light Bulbs were found in a bas-relief from a mysterious temple that was attributed to Hathor. The bas-relief appears to show two large lamps that are connected by what appears to an electrical connection.
Are the pyramids lit by electricity? This notion of electric illumination may be true, given that there was no evidence or imprints left inside the pyramids by the torches.
This idea may seem absurd at first but it is true. Baghdad has been home to some ancient electric batteries. These batteries are proof that electricity existed long ago.
The Baghdad Battery (sometimes called the Parthian Battery) is a group of three objects that were discovered together: a clay pot, a copper tub, and an iron rod. It was found in Khujut Rabu, an Iraqi city.
Both corrosion and tests suggest that the jar may have an acidic ingredient such as wine or vinegar.
The possibility that the liquid could have been used as an acidic electrolyte to create an electric current using the difference between the electrode potentials for the iron and copper electrodes raised questions.
The hypothesis that early light bulbs were possible may not seem so absurd when we examine these ancient batteries from Baghdad.
