admission for light

This is the ENglish:

The avult in which we placed it (and which had been so long unopened that our torches, half smothered in an oppressive atmosphere, gave us little opportunity for investigation) was small, damp and entirely without means of admission for light

And this is my stab:

Le caveau dans lequel nous le posâmes (et qui ne s’ouvrait pas depuis si longtemps que nos flambeaux, à moitié étouffés par l’atmosphère oppressant, nous donnèrent peu d’occasion d’examen plus profond) était petit, humide, et n’avait aucun moyen pour que la lumière entrât ;

    Hi

    As for light admission I would suggest entrée/passage de lumière. (était dépourvu de tout passage de lumière, not literal but more French sounding)

    (There are other changes to be made in your translation)
