Large bronze torc with bear heads. Torque (troq or torc) from Latin torques "to twist" is a common name for all rigid metal neck rings and it has been used 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.
In Slavic mythology: The image of Veles as a bear might have come from the belief that the Bear is the king of the forest. He protects and takes care of all other animals, plants and the forest itself.

Berserkers (or berserks) were champion Norse warriors who are reported to have fought in a trance-like fury.
