Guy Fawkes' Lantern
A real piece of Gunpowder Plot history
This is the actual lantern which was in the hand of Guy Fawkes when he was apprehended beneath the Houses of Parliament - just moments before he was to light the fuse.
You can see it in the beautifully refurbished Ashmolean Museum in Oxford where it has appropriately been re-located to a basement exhibition gallery.
