- WIKI: The torcs were made on the European continent, somewhere in the area of modern Germany or France, in the fourth or third century BC (400-250 BC). They are some of the oldest examples of Iron Age gold, and of Celtic ornament, ever found in Britain. They have been accredited by Julia Farley, Curator of European Iron Age Collections, Prehistory and Europe at the British Museum, who called them a "unique find of international importance."
