The largest ribbon torc recorded, this piece was made by finely twisting a strip of gold twenty times. Like the ribbon torc found at Knock, this torc is slightly asymmetrical; the twists on the right side are further apart than the twists on the left side. The ribbons end in terminals of octagonal and hexagonal shapes that bend back and lock together.
In 1978, this torc was found
during disc-harrowing with a flanged
torc; both had been deposited in damp land on the edge of a swamp. This
find is unusual because it is the first time in which that a ribbon torc and
flanged torc were found together. Because the flanged torc is clearly acknowledged
as belonging to the late Bronze age, scholars dated this torc to the same origin.
