    Twisted Iron in long, thin sections

    Hi everyone. I was exploring an old cellar hole today (the homesite is on an 1853 map of my area) and came across a long section of this twisted iron. The section was maybe 8 feet long. These three little pieces broke off so I brought them home, and left the rest at the site.

    Can anyone tell me what this might have been for? And how old it would be?

    I searched "twisted iron fence wire" because that was my best guess as to what it was, but I didn't see any images like this.

    Anyway, thanks in advance for your help.
