A torc is an ancient Celtic form of neck ring often made from a single piece or from strands twisted together. Torcs are found in many cultures from the European Iron Age from around 8th century BCE to the 3rd century CE.
A gold torc seems to have identified the wearer as a person of high rank for the Iron Age Celts.These torcs are made from brass and based on a buffer-type found in France.
The set includes:
Neck Torc x 1
