Some would argue the history of Milton Keynes' officially began in 1967 when it was born as a post-war ‘new town’. Throughout the 1960s the UK government believed a new generation of settlements in South East England would relieve London's housing congestion crisis. Milton Keynes was one of the ‘new cities’ to be established, from an area of mainly farmland and undeveloped villages.
However, before this, the area did have a rich history. It was here that the largest hoard of Bronze Age jewellery ever to be excavated in Britain was found. Many believe the oldest golden coin in the country came from Milton Keynes.
