Torc Earrings - Museum Shop Collection
from the collections of the National Museum of Scotland
Scotlands most important Iron Age gold hoard was discovered in 2009 near the town of Stirling by David Booth and his metal detector. The buried treasure consisted of four gold torcs; neck ornaments dating to around 300-100 BC (towards the end of the Iron Age). Alongside tubular torc fragments and one torc of twisted wires were two made of fine, twisted gold, a style known as ribbon torcs on which this jewellery is based.
