Missing section of Sedgeford Torc found

A gold torc made from 25 metres of twisted wire was found in Sedgeford, Norfolk in the 1960s - but it had a bit missing. It went on display in the British Museum (who don't care if things are a bit battered). Now Steve Hammond, a local amateur archaeologist, has found the missing section, about 400 yards away from the original find spot. Happily, the British Museum has been able to buy it with money from their Friends and the National Art Collections Fund - so the two bits are reunited once more. Ahh.,,2-1922526,00.html

It has beautifully snazzy La Tene style ends - you can see a picture on the British Museum Compass website.
