The Tuesday Twist: 20 February
The little thing that holds our lives together....
the Key Ring!
In Ancient Roman times, the key ring took a more literal approach due to a lack of pockets in their togas. The ancients often wore keys on their fingers to avoid losing them.
Throughout history the keyring has retained it's symbol of significance. Much like the Ancient Egyptian assertion that keys = power and importance, keyrings have often been used in ceremonial displays such as the Tower of London's Ceremony of the Keys. This 700 year old ancient ceremony is a symbolic re-enactment which emphasises the importance these keys play in the security of the Crown Jewels and many other invaluable objects housed within the Tower.
