Found at Ken Hill, Snettisham, Norfolk, England in 1950, the Snettisham Great Torque is the most famous object from Iron Age Britain. Made with great skill and tremendous care from gold and silver in the first half of the first century BC (around 75 BC), the Snettisham Great Torque is one of the most elaborate golden objects ever made in the ancient world. Not even Greek, Roman or Chinese gold workers living 2000 years ago made objects of this complexity! The original is housed in The British Museum, where much information is available on their website.
This stunning, high quality replica is manufactured from solid brass and gold plated, 9" width and weighing 1.25kg. There are sometimes very minor discrepancies in the gold plating (if you look hard enough) - but nothing that detracts from the overall splendour of this item!
