The Ipswitch Torque is a Celtic Iron Age English torc and its shape is typical of the late Latene period around 75 BC. Together with five other Celtic torcs, the original was found during construction work near the village of the same name in Suffolk, England in 1968. Characteristic of the torcs of the late La Tene period are the design of two twisted rods. This makes the material very flexible, you can bend the torc open and close and adjust it to size. The Ipswitch hoard, together with the Snettisham hoard, is one of the two most important finds of Celtic gold torques in England. Both torcs are now in the British Museum in London.
