So who was it that actually discovered electricity and took the opportunity to create an artificial light source? Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison are the respective gentlemen believed to be the fathers of light or at least that’s the answer that has been accepted as a fact.

Curiosity and surprise have been present when trying to figure out how did the ancients in Egypt achieve their artistic and technical perfection in total darkness in the immense underground corridors that are found in countless monuments in different necropolis through Egypt. Just how did they manage these incredible feats without a constant light source? That is a question that has been partially answered by archaeologists and historians, but these theories haven’t been accepted by everyone.
