Torque (troq or torc) from Latin torques "to twist" is a common name for all rigid metal neck rings, that our ancestors had been wearing since the Bronze Age. Torcs were popular with the Romans and it is considered a typical Celtic artefact. It was a symbol of both religious and secular power, worship and protection, as torcs were worn by Gods and Godesses, heroes, warriors and aristocracy; it represented a high social status and importance.
