The Snettisham Hoard, or Snettisham Treasure, is
a series of discoveries of Iron Age precious metal, found in
the Snettisham area of the English county of Norfolk between
1948 to 1973.
The hoard consists of metal, jet and over
150 complete gold torques dating from BC 70. Though the
origins are unknown, it is of a quality to have been the
royal treasury of the Iceni.
In 1985 there was also a find of Romano-British jewellery
and raw materials buried in a clay pot in AD 155. Though it
has no direct connection with the nearby Iron Age finds, it
may be evidence of a long tradition of gold- and
silver-working in the area.
The finds are deposited in Norwich Castle Museum and the
The Snettisham Treasure. Current Archaeology.
