The Newark Torc

 

The Newark Torc is a complete Iron Age gold alloy torc found on the outskirts of Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire.

The torc was probably made in Norfolk and it closely resembles the Great Torc from Snettisham and is also closely similar to one found at Sedgeford, north Norfolk, so much so that one expert has suggested that they might have been made by the same craftsman.
The torc has been dated to between 250 and 50 BC and is thought to have been buried in around 75 BC.
