In the heraldic community I've been a pusher for "Beam 'n' Read".
They're available from The Container Store.  It's a little electric
light (2 AA batteries) in a little box that hangs from a cord around
your neck.  Some advantages:
- easily portable
- no open flame or melted wax
- you tilt the lid to direct the light.  You can direct it so that you
can see what you're reading but nobody else can see the light.  Good
for night vision and for not breaking the mood
- look, Ma -- no hands!

A link-bearer standing behind me is neat and period.  A lantern on a
post is neat and period too, I presume.  Lacking them at most events,
I push "Beam 'n' Read".

I am indebted to Master Tadhg Liath for the pointer to these.
