Four Iron Age skeletons unearthed at Stratford's London 2012 Olympics site

Four skeletons buried in an Iron Age settlement have been unearthed by archaeologists exploring the London 2012 Olympics site.

They were found in a cemetery, along with the remains of a goat believed to have been sacrificed in their honour.

It stood on the site of what has now become the Aquatics centre.

Other prized finds at the east London site include a 4,000-year-old Neolithic flint axe and a 19th century boat used for hunting wild fowl on the River Lea.

Roman coins have also been uncovered during Britain’s largest archaeological survey which saw 140 trenches built over the 2.5sq km park.
