    Detail on a Torc found in Castro de Xanceda, Xanceda Celtic Hillfort, Mesía, A Coruña, Galiza, Gallaecia. A torc is a large rigid or at least stiff neck ring in metal, made either as a single piece or from strands twisted together. For the Iron Age Celts the gold torc seems to have been a key object, identifying the wearer as a person of high rank, and many of the finest works of ancient Celtic art are torcs.
