Milton Keynes in 100 Objects
In tribute to the BBC series ‘The World in 100 objects’, Discover Milton Keynes, now located on the first floor of Milton Keynes Library, has launched its own series starting with The History of Milton Keynes in 100 objects... the first 15.
The five main local heritage organisations chose 3 objects each to start this unique exhibition:
Bletchley Park, secret code breaking centre during the Second World War, included a rotor from an Enigma Machine.
Cowper and Newton Museum selected anti-slavery items find out what the connection is to Olney.
Living Archive chose as one of its three objects a sculpture of local character, Hawtin Mundy, who was the inspiration for books, plays and songs they have created.
Milton Keynes City Discovery described through their objects how much heritage Milton Keynes has from a prehistory tusk to the designated map of the new town to be built in North Buckinghamshire.
Milton Keynes Museum concentrates on the development of the area with the coming of the Railways and its previously unheralded connection to the Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
