Torc from Berzocana
"Lost-wax cast reproduction in brass of one of the torcs from Berzoacana (El Terrero, Logrosán, Cáceres). Final Bronze Age. 10th-9th century BC. Currently housed in the National Archaeological Museum (Madrid).

The original is a solid piece of gold with a circular cross-section thickened at the center and button-like terminations, adorned with geometric motifs (very similar to the torc from the Valdeobispo Treasure). It is not very ductile (the ends, which are also narrow, cannot be separated), which suggests that it might not have been worn or was not commonly used; rather, it might have been ceremonial jewelry or perhaps part of the dowry for women of high rank.

This discovery was accidental. Everything indicates that there were initially three torcs inside a bronze bowl (one of them was sold and melted down. See restitution proposal.
