Hi! I'm working on a historical fantasy novel set in 1802, and there's one little detail that's driving me crazy: how exactly did people light candles? (Besides just dipping them into a fire, the obvious solution...but they must have done something to light those fires originally!) Did they use tinderboxes to light the candles? Or tinderboxes plus paper spills? Or tinderboxes plus sulphuric matches plus paper spills? Or was it some method I've never even heard of? If anyone has any ideas (even if they're just ideas of good places for me to look for the information), I'd be so grateful.
