A view of the famous gold torc hoard found in Norfolk several years ago. Possibly made by Iceni craftsmen they are only a few of many, both whole and broken. Some have said they are as important as the crown jewels. They featured in a recent documentry by Channel 4 on the Iceni, also on the BBC's A history of Celtic Britain.
The bottom one is made out of electrum, a gold/silver alloy.
