Remains Found

Archaeologists working at the construction site for London's 2012 Olympic Park have uncovered prehistoric skeletons on the site of the Aquatics Centre.

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) said that four skeletons were found, together with Iron Age cooking pots, a Roman coin, Roman river walls, World War II gun emplacements and a complete 19th-century boat used for hunting wild fowl on the River Lea.

Unsurprisingly the ODA is confident that no artefacts will be found that are important enough to require preservation on site, and thus hold up construction work!

I wonder what "legacy"/remains, if any, of the 2012 Games will be discovered 1000 years into the future?
