I really can’t resist physical anthropology. I see it, I must make it.
Torc making is really kind of cool…
I got all this bronze, and I’m deconstructing pictorial examples of Iceni torcs so I can construct my own.
This is my progress so far.
Each of these 4 large coils I wound from 3 smaller coils, each in turn made of 2 wires coiled from 1 stock wire.
I love the respect for symmetry in early British peoples.
Fucking love it.
I still have to wind these four coils into the finished torc, and then cap the ends.
I’ll post the finished product as soon as it’s done. Probably tomorrow.
