2002 The Milton Keynes ‘Pot of Gold’

An NHMF grant of £180,000 enabled the British Museum to acquire the Milton Keynes ‘Pot of Gold’. This 3,000-year-old group of gold neck rings and bracelets was discovered in Monkston Park, Milton Keynes. The hoard is outstanding because of its size, weight and unusual combination of different styles of ornament.
