Archaeologists to chart history of London's Olympic Park
Archaeologists are working with London 2012 organizers to chart the history of Olympic Park — from Roman times until industrialization.

The Olympic Delivery Authority and the Museum of London will work together as the 202-hectare (500-acre) East End site is prepared for construction of the main stadium, aquatics center, velodrome and other arenas.

"We are starting well ahead of the planned start of construction and nothing is expected to be found that could affect our timetable," ODA chief executive David Higgins said Thursday.
